Pain in my right ankle

by Puspa Das
(Bhubaneswar, Odisha, INDIA)

Suddenly, I have severe pain in my right ankle. It is so painful that I can hardly stand, leave aside the prospects of walking.Even during sleeping, I get miserable trying to find a proper position for my paining ankle. Sometimes I get terrible pain as if there is an wound inside! The area is swollen and I can feel the warmth.

I am hyper reactive to several drugs, specially - pain killers.
I have undergone Angioplasty 3 years back . My doctor has to take extra care in psecribing a drug for me. Now, I am on Atorvastatin, Aspirin, Ramipril, Telmisartan and Metoprolol.
Please advise me. My pain becomes unbearable!

Gosh, Puspa, you are taking a lot of medication. It's possibly, though unlikely that it's a side-effect of one of them.

More likely, is that you have slightly sprained your ankle, or an old injury.

Sitting, rotate and mobilise your ankle several times a day. Then ice it, with an ice cube right over the painful area.

If that doesn't help, then you're going to need to see a clinician about it.
