Grade 3 sprained ankle with ruptured ATFL
2 weeks ago I fell and severely sprained my left ankle. After a few visits to the hospital and GP found out I have a grade 3 sprain and completely ruptured the ATFL.
I am icing my ankle, wearing a camm boot and doing exactly what I'm told by the GP.
I have tried walking without the camm boot, but I get extremely dizzy and feel sick. Is this normal?
You shouldn't be walking without the support for the ankle. You're not doing EXACTLY what you were told by the doctor! It's probably the pain that's making you nauseous.
If it really is completely ruptured, it's probably a job for an orthopaedic surgeon. How was the diagnosis made?
