Injury help

Today at hockey practice i went feet first into the boards, (almost identicle to how crosby got injured) and i hurt my ankle. Im pretty sure it isnt broken, i can put weight on it but i cant put weight on it and twist it or bend it. I will try and give you a discription of what one part looks like, and i dont know all of the bones and terms so bare with me.
On the outside of your ankle there is a bump, and beside that bump there is a little bit of a hole, on my ancle right now there is a big bump on that hole

does anyone know what the injury could be, any help would be appreciated
Please be serious

Oh, it's definitely-YOU SHOULD GO TO A DOCTOR.

The internet by and large did not do multiple years of med school, or is otherwise certified in any way to diagnose you based on a text description.

Don't listen to Congo. The net is perhaps the best place to get medical advice. I'm a Doctor myself and I can tell even without looking at you that it's your tonsils. PM me and I'll tell you how you can remove them yourself with common household items.

Thats pretty good!
You give that advice to Sid?


For now always remember RICE, if you are not going to the hospital

Rest
Ice
Compress
Elevate..

I broke my ankle in July, really not much you can do in many cases. Probably a sprain, you'd probably know if you broke it, althoughif you broke your Fibula you cn usually still walk, its non-weightbearing. def go to a doc though...

You may want to wear some kind of ankle brace the first few times you do go skate. I know it was different, but last night i played my first game in 6 months after breaking my ankle. I have been skating for weeks, and use an Ace style wrap. Not comfortable at all, but at least it helps. Took a while to get things going to.

Good luck.

A Sprain can actually be worse than breaking, depend son how much ligament damage there is....Many times a Doc will say it is better to break. Although I am not sure i agree with them after my encounter.....
