    quick...R I C E - rest, ice, compress and elevate!!!! quicker the better. You don't need to ice continously, but several times for about 5 min or so till you get to the doctor. It will help keep the swelling down.

    Good advice Mini-V.

    Hope everything turns out ok. At least you will have some more free time for the boards without school the next day or two

    I have plenty of experience in this; I'm currently nursing a pulled hamstring.

    It doesn't happen to be your right ankle is it? I just sprained mine friday and it swelled up pretty good too. Speaking of which, I just looked at it again just now, and I just noticed a new bruise further up my leg. P and P cause I know what you're going through.

    at least the school year is nearly over. glad to hear it's a sprain and not a break. (you can use that gym time as an extra study hour and skate through finals)
