Ankle Sprains...

                       I was wondering if anyone here knows if it is
possible to have more than a grade 1 ankle sprain if no bruising
occurs. I sprained my ankle running about 4 weeks ago and the ankle
swelled slightly, since then the ankle has shown no bruising and the
swelling has been going down slowly - however there is a bit left. I am
thinking that 4 weeks seems quite a long time for the swelling to still
be*** around and maybe it is not swelling but scar tissue
indicating it is a more serious injury. The ankle is almost pain free
with just twinges here and there when going upstairs. I am laying off
all running until it is totally pain free, just been walking every day
for about 30 mins.

                      Any input would be appreciated,
