Ankle Sprain Symptoms
Ankle sprain symptoms can vary widely depending on the grade of the sprain, but in most cases, the first indicators of an ankle sprain may feel very similar to a simple twisted ankle. You may experience:
- Soreness and tenderness when weight is placed on the foot
- Swelling and redness around the ankle area
- Sharp pains when the joint is moved or rotated
- A bruised appearance
- An unsteady, loose feeling in the joint
Many of these symptoms will grow much worse when weight is placed on the injured foot, but a steady pain will likely be present even when the ankle is at rest. Be careful not to injure yourself further by attempting to keep working.
