How long has the ankle been hurting?
Do you think you may have sprained your ankle? ( most common is the lateral aspect of ankle and you may have swelling of lateral prominence area ...)
It hurts to stand and hear weight ??
Steps that may help -- anti-inflammatory such as Aleve 2 tablets twice a day with food // keep it elevated to extent possible // may benefit from applying cold pack 15 minutes several times a day if recent onset // light compression such as ACE wrap may help comfort and support
It is good that you had negative ultrasound -- location of pain does not sound like DVT either though
I hope that this information is helpful for you
Let me know if you have further questions or concerns
I will be happy to get back with you
If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback
Thank you and Best Regards,
