Sore ankle

My mom has had a sore ankle for a number of weeks. She's been to the doc twice and xrays have shown nothing apart from swelling. She's been told to stay off the foot but finds that the problem continues but is worse when she walks on the foot.

What's the next step?

Dear Ren
The doctor needs to re-evaluate and maybe do a sonar of the soft tissue or some blood tests to exclude inflammation. It may be that she has a bursitis or a tendon inflammation and may need physiotherapy or referral to an orthopod.
