I am 36 years old guy and week back I twisted and sprained my ankle. X-ray confirmed there is no fracture. Doctor prescribed cold therapy and infem tablet. Yesterday ankle developed bruising sign on it and it looks like internally blood accumulated or something. Can you help please.

Dear lybrate-user I think you have ankle sprain with internal bleeding. You have to brace it and give rest and avoid weight bearing as far as possible. It will take about 6-8 week to heal.
Hello Mr. lybrate-user. Thank you for contacting. It can be a ligament injury. Apply ice over the ankle area for 15-20 minutes. Take rest. Physiotherapy can help you in recovering fast. I hope this will help you.
