The back of my leg is slightly swollen and black and blue. Yesterday was the first day I couldn't elevate my leg at work, and when I got hom, the whole thing swelled up like a balloon.
A little, but when I do, it feels like the back of my legs is cramped up, like a charley horse. When I take the weight off, that sensation subsides.
Don't laugh.. this will be hard to explain, so bear with me.
I was loading up our pontoon boat with gear. I stepped over a 5 gallon gas can as I placed a cooler on the boat, other side of the can. When I stepped back over the can and put my right foot down on the dock, my right (not hurt) ankle rolled in my sandals.
My right foot slid down into the water between the boat and dock. My left (hurt) leg flew up in the air, and dropped forcefully onto the rope that moored the boat to the dock.
My initial reaction as I tried to pull myself out of the water was that I had broken my leg. After a few minutes lying on the dock I was able to hop to shore, where I laid in the grass for quite some time.
Nope, when I saw him first thing Tuesday morning he said he'd do an MRI on Friday if things hadn't improved. Its almost 72 hours later, and everything still hurts like hell, including the top of my ankle now.
