How about Hospiten or the Playa International Clinic (10th Ave/28 Street).

I'm no doctor but it occurs to me that a sprain so severe that you can't weight bear on it should probably be x-rayed to confirm you haven't broken something. There are lots of little bones in the ankle and you do NOT want to neglect even a minor fracture - having broken both ankles myself, I know a little of which I speak.

Hope you feel better quickly.

I have seen a doctor and have sprained each ankle too many times to count. I am certain it is just a bad sprain but appreciate the concern and recommendations

Could your doctor not tell you when you could get some crutches?

Maybe ask over on playa.info where there's many locals on the board.

Hope your ankle heals well, sprains are no fun.
