what can i do to feel less pain???

Cut off ur leg

Take some motrin or ibuprofen. Wrap not too tightly with ace bandage to give ankle some support. Probably just sprained.

put less pressure on your leg
if you have crutches use them
hop on one foot
anything to stay off your left foot

francesca dukrik
Its not broken, if it was you would not have been able to walk on it today. If it is swollen then it is probably sprained though. Take some paracetamol and get a doc to look at it ASAP.

J shiz
you would be in a lot of pain and you wouldn't be able to stand... You must have bad parents if you haven't been to the hospital already

you dont

put ice on it

ahhaha...bro..BELIVE ME..you dont have a broken leg..if u did..just a slight vibration would send shocking screaming pain, to a bone that has been snapped...u proble sprained or just twisted it...if its stuck somehwere..than ya its broken..then u wont feel anything..but if u can move it..its not broken..just have ice..it will go away

Bandaloop Doctor
you would be screaming and not be able to walk if you had broken it. It is probably twisted or sprained, i would wait a day and if it still hurts go to the doc.

to feel less pain take some tylonol and ice it, but never ice more than 20 mins You may have just rolled your ankle and it will feel better in a few days. I doubt that you actually broke it. I have had the same thing happend to me. If the pain is not gone in a week go see a doctor and have them take a look at it.

take sum medication... or come in crutches lol

you need to ice it and keep it elevated.
definitely dont walk on it, if you cant apply pressure.
use crutches
you can miss a day of school, even with midterms.
your teachers will let you make them up
i think thats your best option.

you should stay home tomorrow and ice, 20 minutes on 20 minutes off for an hour or two.
keep it elevated, and wrap it as well. not too tight, but tight enough so it restricts your mobility.
you need to get to the hospital or doctor as soon as you can.
take ib profin if not allergic to help with the pain

do not do much movement. keep off your bad leg as in don't put weight on it. you might want to try wearing sandals instead of sneakers if you wear them to school tommorow. the doctor will probaly give you a boot to wear until your leg heals...well...if it is broken.

if you've cracked or broken something you'll have time to get and x-ray after your midterms. Bones dont mend that fast.

As others have said, take the pressure of the foot, borrow some crutches, keep the foot elevated when you can and use ice.

My guess is you have a sprain rather than a break.

take some painkillers like tylenol or advil this is really important you need to go to a doctor! to get xrays and most likely a cast!!! and dont worry it only takes a few hours so you can stll do your midterm exams.but you need to go to the emergency room as soon as possible!!! before it heals improperly!! doctors have even had to rebreak bones to get them to reheal properly!!

hurry go to the er!

til then immobilize it and dont move it!!! try getting a pair of crutches and take tylenol or advil!!!

you should put an ice pack on it to keep any swelling down on it take some pain pills of some kind&call the advice nurse at the hospital u go to if you hurt more they may ask you to go in&see a droctor right away don't worry about your midturim your health is more important than a mid turn you can make up mid turns but your health is harder to take care of .

Go to the Doctor NOW.

All schools have provisions for medical emergencies; with a note from your Dr., you can always take your midterms later, no harm, no foul.

OH: You might have a broken bone, despite previous answers...it's called a stress fracture and it can be very painful and can get worse if untreated. Again, go to the doctor.

u can put ice on it and take ibuprofen! that might help take some of the pain away! but if its any thing like i did one ice wont take the pain away all it will do is keep the swelling down! also u can go to google and find out more that u can do to help with the pain! good luck!

usually it would be really swollen and u couldnt walk at all so i think u just spranged it.

it's definitely broken. my mum experienced the exact same effects as you.she tripped and complained her hand was in pain but the next day she was fine,THEN after she came from work her arm was swollen. go to your GP and get it checked up they will only put you on a cast. but the question is were you supposed to go out that late???

You should head to the hospital as soon as possible!!! In the meantime, rest it as much as you can, ice it (frozen vegetables work great) for twenty min and take off for a few and repeat, compress it with a bandage or cloth to prevent it from shifting or healing wrong, and elevate it as much as possible.

Do not put it off too long, go to the doctor and get it xrayed. If it is broken it might start to mend in a bad position. Correction for that could mean having to rebreak. An untreated break may cause many problems later in life, believe me.

sorry but you need to go to the hospital ok

stick man
Put ice especially if it is swollen. Maybe you need to see an Emergency Room Doctor tonight.

ice. but you better go to the emergency room tonight. or it will heal wrong and if it is broken they will have to re break it so they can put it right. go to the dr. now.
that person is wrong saying that you wouldn't be able to walk on a broken bone. you can walk on a broken bone. it is not unusual to walk on a broken bone.

I did that too, i had an air cast for about a month in the summer. I just sprained it and i think you did to. You can wrap it in an ACE bandage (in first aid lits usually) and if you want ice it. Advil or Tylenol might help but there are no guarantees.
