My ankle started hurting around a week ago. It hurt to walk and its pretty painful. I thought I just sprained it or pulled a muscle and that it would go away over time.
The ankle pain is not going away and now the pain is in my shin and knee on the same leg. The pain is achey and sharp. I think my knee is a little swollen and it hurts more if you press down on it.
On my knee, there are also some red marks. I thought those would go away in an hour or so but they're still there. The pain is only getting worse and I don't know if these things can even be connected. Some advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
You should see a doctor.
It may be vascular related so you need to make sure it's not a blood clot or another inflammatory response.
Usually decreased circulation starts in the toes with coolness and paleness.
I'm giving you the worst case scenario because it's unusual and needs to be examined.
No fever or broken areas in your skin on that leg?
If so, another reason to get to the doc.
If you could please give us follow up it would be appreciated.
Yes please see a doc asap. Could be broken.
"Scratching my head", wondering: Why in the world haven't you seen a doctor about it YET???
