    Pretty sure I mildly sprained my ankle playing ball yesterday, hurts like a bitch. Iced it for an hour or so and just wrapped an ace bandage around it today, should I go see a doctor to play it safe or what?

    Thanks

    dont be a bitch.

    keep using it.

    trust me if you baby it then you wont be able to use it for a while, if you keep walking on it and working it then you will be fine in a few hours.

    Depends on the level of swelling really. If its just a run of the mill sprain and you can bear weight on it easily just use it. Though I probably wouldn't play sports on it for a few days.
