One week before While playing volleyball my ankle got twisted and I am using RICE method and no pain is there in ankle and but some time swelling goes down and then again it comes back pls tell should I consult a doctor.
There might be ligament sprain. Swelling will persist for some time if you are unable to bear weight then definitely get x-ray and consult. Another wise continue with RICE Method. Along with it while sleeping at night keep legs elevated and can apply crepe bandage. Hope this helps you.
Yes you need to consult a doctor as you may have sustained an ankle ligament injury.
