ankle swollen with shooting pain
My 26 year old boyfriend has been complaining of severe pain in his ankle and foot, with a shooting pain up his leg any time pressure is applied. He did nothing to injure/twist/sprain the ankle or foot. It is extremely swollen and there seems to be fluid moving in there around the ankle. He does not have insurance, and we are trying to figure out what this could be and what we can do at home to relieve the pain. The pain is extreme and it seems to be getting worse. Any ideas and input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Give rest to his ankle, give ice packs, and if you have a crepe bandage tie it properly to that ankle. Also give him some anti inflammatory drugs. The pain and inflammation will decrease with time.
He might have unknowingly twisted it or it might occured during his sleep.

If this does not work you have to visit an Orthopaedician. Take care!
