I hurt my ankle during my trip. Should I get a check up?

Postby zachary33 » Tue May 01, 2018 2:09 am

I’m currently on tour for a social dating tour and I’ve recently hurt my ankle pretty bad the other day. I wouldn’t call it an urgent medical emergency but it is painful enough for me to consider getting it checked on. My question is, should I get it when I get back or here? The thing is, I’d have to skip a day of the tour just for the check up and I don’t really want to because it’ll be a waste of money and time. I’m also unfamiliar with the area as well so, I’ll have to either go on my own or ask someone from the staff if it’s possible. Need some suggestions on this though to make sure.

Having an ankle sprain implies that you have damaged one or more of the ligaments supporting the ankle structure; this is what causes pain and discomfort in the region. Visit a foot & ankle specialist first to determine the extent and severity of the sprain. My advice would be don't risk it. If you re-injure your ankle, you’ll be out of your home country and your insurance may not be accepted if you need care. Plus, your vacation will be blown!
