Minor Fall from Stairs - Swelling

AliBw posted:
I fell down some stairs yesterday. Luckily I held on the railing and it was only three, but I landed on the top of my ankle. Not only has that swollen up, which I expected, but it feels like my whole body has swollen. Is that due to the shock or trauma of the accident? How long does it last?

An internet message board is not the proper place to go for treatment after an injury. You need to see your doctor, go to a hospital emergency room, or go to a walk-in urgent care facility.

It is both impossible and against the rules in all WebMD communities to provide any type of diagnosis or medical advice. You need to see a doctor for evaluation and treatment.
