    A break is actually better than a sprain. Sprains take longer to heal. I'm sure you're just feeling the effects of swelling on the moving parts down there. Keep it elevated and use a heat pad to stimulate blood flow.

    Be glad you didn't tear any muscles. It could have been worse.

    Well, you could always hop around or get a crutch.


    I mean, you'll probably have to take a dump eventually...

    Yeah, those are a bitch, and I never learned how to walk with em properly either. If I was in your position, I'd probably use it as an excuse to buy a sword cane. Like, one of those really cool ones with a snake head or something, but it'd need to be functional as well for obvious reasons.

    What's worse is having both of your knees, both ankles, and both feet fucked up, then having to taking a piss without collapsing. Anyway, I hope it gets better, it's probably like everyone else said, just the sprain swelling up.

    putting a heating pad on it to open up all those blood vessels and what not, then ice it down for a bit. As the body constricts everything to, excess fluid from the swelling will be absorb, taking the swelling down faster than letting it sit.

    Yeah sounds like it's just going thru the healing process. Foot injuries suck. I've broken my ankle and fractured this tiny disc like bone at ball of the foot it sucks. But the worst foot problem I had was this skin infection that caused my foot to swell up like a softball and turn purple. It felt like I was stomping on a golf ball with the arch of my foot every time I put my foot down. Very painful. Took antibiotics for about 3 weeks to get rid of this. So I guess what I'm saying is, you'll be fine and remember "it's pain true pain that let's us know we're alive." I think your gonna make it.

    Hell, even breaking a toe can be a real bitch, and I've done that plenty of times playing soccer & whatnot.

    The fun part is that since I'd force myself to walk funny, I'd end up affecting my entire body in the process, not just that part that was initially injured.
