I was out playing a community soccer game and I think I screwed my ankle all to hell. It happened in the first play but I kept playing because the pain wasn't too bad. It doesn't feel sprained or broken, but it feels like my ankle isn't sitting in joint completely. I still have good range of motion, but the front left part of where my leg connects to my foot feels like there's something displaced inside it. I tried bending it firmly to see if it would pop and get back to where it's supposed to be, hitting it with a closed fist didn't help either.

Any advice, aside from going to a doctor?

wrap in an ace bandage and raise it up for the night.

ive and elevation. 20 minutes on 20 minutes off. Do that the first 24 hours. It will help. If something isnt sitting right tomorrow then go have it x-rayed, chances are its just a good sprain though

Can I have your guns?

RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation)

If the swelling doesn't go down after a couple of days, go to the doc.

It isn't swollen as far as I can see. I have been doing RICE though...

And some Ibuprofen, or other anti - inflammatory.

Stand on the ball of your injured foot with all your weight to see if the tendon will snap in place.

It's going to hurt like hell in the morning if this doesn't work.

Sit down. Put your feet out in front of you, in the air. Look at them both. Is there any puffiness on the upper portion or sides of your foot? Do your ankles look the same width from knob to knob? Is there any bleeding or bruising under the skin?

Might have crunched a ligament. Or stretched one a bit. It's even vaguely posible you chipped the end of your leg-bone.

Take an anti-inflammatory, some pain killer, hydrate and elevate it overnight.
If it's the same or worse in the morning, see a Dr for an x-ray.

You must have a quick link to that pic on your desktop. How many times have you posted it in the last 30 days?

No bleeding or blood under the skin but now that I've really looked at it there is a bit of swelling...

- Ice and 800-1000mg Ibruprofen every 6 hours to reduce imflammation and swelling.
- Stay off of it as much as possible.

You might want an xray of that though, could have ruptured a ligament, might need a cast or brace.
