Should I take him in?

Recommended Posts

17yo ds twisted his ankle/foot playing frisbee last night. I would normally consider it just a twist, but he says it feels like his foot is turned in some. It's slightly swollen with no bruising. The sore spot is on the top of his foot, on the outside near the ankle, if that makes sense. Does it need an x-ray?

It's the lack of bruising that makes me think you should take him in. I've twisted my ankles a bazillion times (I'm actually nursing a bad sprain right now :tongue_smilie: ) and they always come with bruising. My daughter broke her arm two weeks ago with no bruises anywhere. So, yeah, I'd say take him in.
