sprained ankle with popping sound

What causes extreme pain in your calf muscle when putting pressure on your sprained ankle after 10 days.
I stepped on a tree root that was above the ground while walking in the grass.
I am now wearing a air-splint and the ankle is not getting better.
What should I do next?

Hello!

You might have twisted your ankle in a very awkward direction which also involved your leg with pain in the calf area. The calf is inflamed along with the ankle and it might have involved some tendons, muscles and ligaments from calf area to the ankle area.
This happens when you put your leg into a pit or on a very unleveled area when it happens suddenly.

Did you have an X-ray?

I suggest you to wear the splint, take rest, apply ice packs if possible and take anti inflammatory drugs for some days.

Take care!
