Hi. I dropped a shelf on my top part of my foot. It’s now swollen and sore and not so easy to walk on. Do I need an X-ray?
Foot accident: Yes, please seek medical help. You will likely be given an x-ray. You don't want any possible breaks or fractures to heal out of alignment. That would cause more problems later. Peace and good health. ...Read more
Hi. I dropped a shelf on the top of my foot and it’s swollen up. It’s sore to walk on but Do I need to get x rays?
Trauma pain swelling: I would recommend x rays there is the possibility of a fracture if no fracture is seen there is fragile soft tissue structures on top of your foot..... nerve. ..tendons that are very superficial and easily traumatized.....I'm concerned that you have pain walking and barring weight this could mean a fracture is present if X-ray is negative I still would be suspicious for a stress fracture...... ...Read more

Acute athlete's foot: The first thing that comes to mind is that this is one of the presentations of acute athlete's foot. Use drying soaks (epsom salts or dilute vinegar) and a topical antifungal... I prefer patients use lotrimin ultra or Lamisil (terbinafine) cream. You can use certain-dry pads or solutions to decrease perspiration. If this doesn't work, see a podiatrist and be sure to inform them of what you have tried already. ...Read more

I slipped down a couple steps yesterday. My left foot is swollen tender and discolored on the top. Is it a sprain or broken?
Walk the Walk: Maybe both! If you can walk on it, it's probably a sprain or a small fracture-but if it's swollen and tender and discolored it's a moot point. Go get it examined and maybe x-ray'd.You don't want to walk too much on an injury that looks like that without finding out what's going on inside. Chances are you might get away with it but if after 2-3 days it's not getting better or is the same, see a doc. ...Read more
I was walking into work and got a sharp pain across the top of my foot where the toes connect and it has been swollen tender nothing is broke had xray?
Neuroma?: It is possible you have a 'pinched' nerve between the toes. Do you wear dressy tight fitting shoes- that would make this worse, do you feel an occassional click? Even though the x-ray was negative you could also still have a stress fracture. It will need to be x-rayed after 10 days. ...Read more

Can you get just a sprain (not break) if you fall & your foot bangs into something hard? Swollen, very sore, weird color, but can walk on it sort of.
Yes: Sometimes sprains hurt worse than fractures. Rest your ankle, apply ice in 20 minute intervals to decrease swelling, and elevate the ankle above your heart. Also wrapping with an ACE bandage or similar dressing may help. If pain or swelling continue please see your doctor, you may have a hairline fracture or serious ligament injury. ...Read more

Why do you get slightly swollen or puffy ankles and what can I do for them after I walk? Outside foot under ankle sore on the bony bit. Is better.
Swelling: It is normal for women to get some swelling in the ankles over times as the deep veins of the leg become less effective at pumping blood back to the heart. Elevation and ice can help after exercise. Compression stockings can help. If there is also pain present, tendonitis or arthritis can be a cause and should be evaluated by a foot and ankle specialist. ...Read more

Rolled foot inwards, swollen a bit after 1 week, can walk and jump on it with no pain, sore to touch and if stretched, how long before I can playsport?
2-4 weeks: Sounds like a mild or grade 1 sprain or tear of ankle ligaments. Rule of thumb is if you can walk on you toes without a sensation of instability or weakness you can consider returning to sports. Up on your toes is the most unstable position for your ankle. Remember also you must crawl before you walk, walk before you run and run before you cut and jump: i.e. Natural progression of recovery. ...Read more
My older brother has some type of sore on the bottom of his foot and it has foot has swollen up. He is currently unable to walk on it. Could this be an infection?
Potential infection: Your instinct may be correct. Without being able to look at the sore, touching and feeling the skin around the sore and knowing more history - I would recommend a follow up with a physician. There is a higher risk for infections to the foot for people who have diabetes. Redness, swelling, warmth and tenderness around the area are all signs of infections. Again, I would recommend a follow-up. ...Read more
