can hardly put any weight on it.i iced it this morning and then put a semi tight wrap around it..
i'm in class now hobbling around...
should i keep off it or a little bit of hobbling around isn't 2 bad?
Did you hear a "pop"? If it's still swollen for the next day or so, go to the doc. Not trying to scare you, but if you twisted it and it swelled right away it could be an indication of an ACL sprain. If so you need to find out what grade the sprain is, if it's a grade 1 you can usually just stay off of it, keep it up, Ice and Ibuprofin. If its a Grade 2, it could mean a slight tear might require no surgery but physical therapy, If it's a grade 3, it usually means ACL reconstruction with about 4-6 months of rehab and a full recovery in about a year.
