So last night, I rolled my ankle on some stairs, being in supportless chucks.
It swelled up a crazy amount and hurt to walk, though I could manage a limp.
Iced it overnight, the swelling went down. I can now walk on it better though it still twinges. It's starting to bruise a bit on the top of my foot/bottom bit of ankle.

Does this sound broken to y'alls? I'm going to get it checked out at some walkin place later today, but I'd still appreciate some advice.

It's definitely worse than a twisted ankle- at least a sprain, maybe a dislocation. I doubt there are broken bones unless you have some underlying condition, but since ligaments and tendons heal slower than bone, I'd still get that checked unless you want to run the risk of permanently damaging your leg.

righto, got it checked and it was just a stretched ligament. Iced it overnight and I could walk fine after a few days.
Thanks.

Monthly Goals

  1. Paying the Bills
    $25.00 of $50.00
    The first $50 in donations go towards paying our monthly server fees and adding new features to the website. Once this goal is reached, we'll see about feeding Matt that burrito.
  2. Buy Matt a Beer
    $25.00 of $75.00
    Now that we have the bills paid for this month, let's give Matt a hearty thank you by buying him a drink for all the hard work he's done for StP. Hopefully his will help keep him from going insane after a long day of squishing website bugs.
  3. Feed Matt a Burrito
    $25.00 of $100.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt has a beer in his hand, how about showing him your love by rewarding all his hard work with a big fat burrito to put in his mouth. This will keep him alive while programming new features for the website.
  4. Finance the Shopping Cart
    $25.00 of $200.00
    Now that the bills are paid and Matt is fed, perhaps it's time to start planning for those twilight years under the bridge... if only he had that golden shopping cart all the oogles are bragging about these days.
