I have a dull aching pain…is it a fracture?

I am a 12 year old girl and i was running in gym a few weeks ago and i landed sideways on my ankle. then i went to gymnastics thinking it was fine but i did a layout (back flip) and landed sideways on it again. it is a dull aching pain when sitting or resting or walking but when i jump or tumble etc. it is more of a sharp pain underneath my fibula. it isn’t very swollen i started wearing my brace and using RICE but it still hasn’t gotten any better. could it be a fracture or sprain or nothing?

  1. it can be a ligament sprain. fracture is less likely.
    get xray/mri done

  2. Thanks for your question.

    In order to identify the problem, the best thing to do is to get an X-Ray done.

    Good luck.

  3. Hi..
    As you are able to put weight on the feet then it can be probably due to sprain and not fracture..
    However for a confirmation you can get an x ray done..

    Hope this helps..
