Thanks for the response.
I usually never see a doctor, but then again, i'm one...
LOL. You can't go wrong there.
If it's getting better already, it might not be serious. If the pain gets worse during the first hours, go see a doctor.
I actually meditated on my leg while at the gym and the pain subsided greatly. I also had to walk home from the gym, which is between 1 to 2 miles and did a meditation on that as well, and my foot barely hurt, wasnt an inconvience at all and I barely felt it.
As for now, I havent been meditating on my leg so the pain has came back. But Ill see how my sleep goes. Generally I get recovered after a rest.
- Is your ankle swollen badly?
Not at all thank God.
- Is your ankle blue or red?
If yes, it indicates a more serious injury, a fracture or rupture of ligaments or tendons. Go see a doctor immediatly!
I actually thought about my tendons and ligaments when it happened. But from those two negative answers to the question, thankfully its most likely out of the question.
If you're able to move your foot normally, it's probably not broken, but could still be partly ruptured.
Yup I can move it normally, full ROM. Problem is that it hurts when I point my toe downwards or when I walk and the ball of the foot raises and its toes on the ground. I'll get to that in the next reply.
Yes, there could be damages. I would expect damages by the way you describe the accident!
It really depends on you if you think it's nothing serious or it is. I would recommend to see a doctor just to make sure.
You wrote you couldn't walk for a minute - what then??? Was it better?
At first i suspected you've ruptured your achilles tendon, but that would not have been better after a minute.
Ya, it was a ballistic movement with none of my antagonist muscle support since I just dropped it on the way down. As for the doctor, sucks cause Im not on a plan right now. This is why its an even bigger thing.
As for the walking, like I mentioned the meditation took a lot of the pain out of my mind. But now it bugs me especially when I kneel down and when I need to get back up especially.
Same thing with the achilles tendon I was thinking, because thats the area that hurts the most. I think when the toes point down and the heel goes up it places pressure and strain on the achilles region since there is flexion. Theres pain with extension, but not as much as flexion.
There's also a small pain at the upper left lateral to my leg, but its not really that noticeable.
I wish you all the best, may it be nothing serious!!
Thanks for the well wishes, I deeply appreciate them. You have a great day too! Love and peace as well.
Sadly...if this isnt better by the time I wake up, I'm going to have to skip the gym today because it was cardio....
