I bit the bullet and went to the doctor because of an ankle injury this weekend. Correction - not an injury an "incident." I was just walking and BAM ankle pain.

I went to the doctor because the pain and swelling and redness had spread up my calf in an odd blotchy way, and everyone was like BLOOD CLOT!!! (I'd already RICEd.) Ultrasound ruled out a blood clot, but my GP never called me back after the ultrasound to let me know what the next steps or treatment should be.

The ankle still hurts, is still swollen, and still red. Mid-calf same, now my upper calf is starting down the same path. I can deal with pain, I just want to know what it is and is there anything else I have to do?
