I sprained my ankle on NYE. Any thoughts on helping it heal quicker?

I hope you had it checked by a doctor to make sure there are no fractures? You need to stay off of it as much as possible. Try and prop it up to be more comfortable. I guess we will be seeing a lot of posts from you? Hope your ankle gets better soon and you aren't in too much pain!

Hey there! And welcome to mylot!Im soo sorry to hear about our ankle..as a matter of fact i did it Christmas week..and i know how painful it is..I used tylenol and advil..first take an Advil,then 6 hrs later tylenol..thats what my Doc said..Advill helpos alot with the swelling..and yes keep it propped up,i got stiff lying on my back,or sitting so i would lie on my side with a pillow under my feet..and get an Ace bandage..they even have these cool little slip on bandages so you dont have to wrap your foot all the time..and keep puttin frozen veggies,or ice pack on your foot..will keep the swelling down as well..good luck!!
