    Fell off the curb at work of all places. The only good thing is that I won't have to walk up and down those stairs in the morning!

    Sports doctors give you a kit for ankle sprains.

    They want you to take a towel or the big rubber band in the kit and put your foot in it and press against it like stepping on the gas - this should be done the very day you sprain it.

    Apply weight as can be tolerated.

    Alternate hot and cold

    Keep elavated

    work the towel and keep the ankle limber

    You may have a drink just in case it helps

    Be well TresClutzy

    ((((((TRES)))))) Honest to gawd, this worked for me after I had two sprained ankles from a car accident. Someone told me to slather 'em with regular ol' Vicks VapoRub, then cut the toes out of a pair of old socks and place one on each sprained foot (ankle) and wrap each with an ace bandage. I did this overnight as instructed and they were both 95% better the next morning. Almost as if they hadn't been sprained. Wish they'd told me sooner. I hobbled for quite a while before someone told me this.

    Hope you're better, cher!
