Why do you have to ride? It would be better to not if possible. You could soak it in Epsom salt.

well sense you have 24 hours i would definantly ice it down, and if its hurtin you then take some pain medicine. Do you think you might of spraind it? i would recommend you get alot of protien, because obviously protein repairs and builds. But make sure you stay off it, ice it down good but also kinda stretch it abit so it dont get real stiff.. I hope this helps..

Careful, pain medication and riding don't mix, unless it is an OTC like Tylenol or Ibuprofen. I'm not a physician and not your mama, so I'm not going to ask why it is that you must ride if you were told to rest it.
Is it possible to ice it & wrap it with an ace bandage or grab a slide on ankle support from the drug store?

I had some Ibprofen ealyier. I feeling better i think its bc of pain med. LOL

Well then ILUV2ride, let us be positive an hope for the best, may you ride perfectly, keep the Ibuprofen handy!
