It could be fractured. Head to an urgent care today for an x-ray and depending on the issue they can refer you to a podiatrist in your area.

When something falls on the top of the foot, there are many structures that can be injured. Certainly, the possibity of a fracture is one of them. There are superficial nerves and blood vessels that can be compromised by such an injury. Numbness and tingling can be as a result of this. A physical examination and x-rays are needed to rule out fracture. Further testing may be needed as well.

Unfortunately , there are lots of structures that can be injured with trauma to the foot , not just bones. See your podiatrist for x rays and an evaluation.

It's possible that there could be a fracture. You may need to clinical evaluated and need imaging (x-rays) to determine if there is a fracture and get treatment. Good luck.
