If it is too painful to walk on an injured foot or ankle, crutches or some kind of cane should be used. While pain is a normal part of the healing process, it can also be an indicator that a follow up trip to the doctor is needed.

I just hurted my ankle bone it hurts so bad. My clinic doctor said it wasn't broken Why does it still hurt?

if you have sprained or rolled your ankle, it is going to hurt. alot. when i sprained mine it hurt for so long after and i was crying for the rest of the day. a sprain is actually worse than a break, because it hurts more. bones are not connected to any nerves and if it's a break, it will hurt for a bit after the injury has occurred, maybe 10 minutes after, however a sprain means that the ligaments are stretched and need to be shrunk back, meaning of course it is going to hurt more. the best thing you can do is RICE, and hire crutches. DO NOT DO SPORT FOR A FEW WEEKS!
