The top of my foot is swollen and bruised. It hurt earlier but there is no pain now. I don't know what happened. Any suggestions on what is wrong?
I landed on my foot wrong and I thought nothing of it. Now the bottom of my foot hurts and the top is bruised and swollen.
Rice now.: Sounds like you would benefit from the RICE protocol. Rest, Ice , Compression and Elevation. Painful on the bottom and bruised on the top could mean a fracture is possible. See how it feels tomorrow. If the foot still is painful when bearing weight, then you will need an x-ray to verify possible bone trauma. I'm sure a Healthtap specialist can guide you through your care. ...Read more

Make sure that the cause of the puncture is not an immediate cause of concern for an infection, so keep an eye out. ...Read more
I hurt my ankle it hurts on both sides on my foot and the top i can walk and move it but it hurts it isn't swollen or bruised what is the matter?
My top of the foot has been swollen and bruised for two weeks. Very hard to walk on it. I noticed a protrusion on the inside of my foot?
I hurt myself and now the inner side on the top of my left foot is swollen, bruised, and it has a bump. It's hard to walk. What should I do? Thanks
Rice It.: Begin with the RICE protocol. Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation. Do not put weight on it until tomorrow. The swelling should be reduced as well as the pain. If you still can't walk on it tomorrow, you will have to use crutches and see your doctor. X-rays may be needed. I doubt that it's fractured, but, one never knows. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
