Busted (twisted) my ankle again

I busted (twisted) same ankle 2-nd time this year.
My foot slipped on a curb and I felt huge pain.
15 minutes later my ankle was 4 times the size.
Day later it has 4 different colors, dark blue, purple red and yellow, and still swollen.
Should I go to a doc to X-ray my foot or suck it up and let it heal on it self?
Firs time I twisted my ankle doc. said I should wear cast, but when I twisted that ankle I thought I lost my foot. This time is not that bad like the last time but still hurts.I would not make photo because it will destroy you appetite.

Yes, go to the doctor. My brother was out of work for nearly a year with a bad ankle sprain, not something to be screwed around with.

Do you want to keep messing it up every three months?

Ice while it's swollen, heat after the swelling goes down.

Yes go see a Dr.

I just went today after waiting 2 weeks because there was no way for me to get out of work... Torn tendons are bad especially in the right wrist. Driving stick left-handed sucks/

" or suck it up and start learning how to walk like a legless pirate "

lol

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

Your brother works for the City of Chicago?

I am in the same situation. I hurt my ankle really bad back in April from Snowboarding. I didn't have insurance so I couldn't go to the doctor. And it still hurts every time I walk. So please, go get it looked at.
