how do I know if I sprained or strained something?

My ankle is really hurting me and the pain is not letting up at all. I dunno what I did, but it feels like something is really wrong. I already made an appointment with the doctor, but it's not until later this week :( Also if I do have a strain or sprain what should I do to help keep it from getting any worse other than just pagpaparangal it up cause I have school and stuff.

I'm not a doctor, but I can do some research on this kind of stuff.

If you feel pain immediately when you roll, twist, or turn your foot, it might be signs of a sprained ankle. There are 3 levels of ankle sprain: mild, moderate, and severe. How much you're injured depends on the amount of pain or the difficulty you have while using your ankle. If your ankle is sprained it will most likely swell IMMEDIATELY after you hurt your ankle.

You should also look for bruises, but even though it is common, it doesn't always occur.

Touch your ankle and pay attention to any soreness or sensitivity in your ankle. If your ankle is sprained, you will most likely have tenderness in or around the area of injury. If it's purplish you should stay off of it for a week or so.

If you have severe pain you should seek medical attention IMMEDIATELY. Or if you have an extreme amount of swelling or you are experiencing a loss of feeling in your foot or toes. These symptoms indicate that you have a level 3 sprain, the most severe sprain. If you don't get medical attention IMMEDIATELY, you might have to get surgery.

I recommend you schedule an appointment with a physician for an examination of your ankle.

I hope this helps. ;)

I'm probably a mild sprain, because it is swollen and hurts to be on it but the pain is bareable. I'm limping though.

I've had my arm pains, latterly, well, sometimes I just have it and blah blah blah,

So seriously I have pains everywhere, I've broken my arm like last week, but today it felt better than yesterday, and trust me, I don't really feel like sitting here typing walang tiyak na layunin stuff, because I'm to lazy to get up and find something else to do

And randomly I could say I've finally just went out side just about an oras ago,

And now I bashed my head on the pader and it got a hole in it,

But now, just sitting here thinking about that week I broke my arm once in a while,

I thank you e__e
