Thanks Susan! I consulted with a friend from home who is a Dr. and he said it's not an emergency based on the initial injury happening on 9/16. Therefore, I did not go to a PCP for an XR in order to save money since my insurance is minimal at the moment.
I've been getting deep sleep this via cold showers before bed, and just started with DMSO cream off of Amazon. The swelling has started to go down dramatically and the pain is down to < 5 out of 10. Once my coverage improves I'll look into an XR and PT as there might be scar tissue.
