Hi I fall down from my bicycle and my ankle is still swollen after 1 week. I put ice on it but still there is pain inside and I don't really want to see a doctor. Can it be severe or not? What can I do to stop the pain and swelling please?

Hi if you've put ice and rested it but still you're having pain and swelling you should consider that there is a crack at your ankle. The only solution that offers to you is to consult a doctor and to have an X-ray. This won't heal on its own if you keep on walking and being active. Take care and do rest.
