If there is: Bruising on the lateral ankle with swelling and you absolutely can't tolerate any pressure you may need x-ray, but typically just the anterior tibio-fibular ligament is sprained and only requires ice, elevation and early mobilization with bracing. Best to have your doctor or a good urgent care doctor take a look. ...Read more

Contusion: This could be a contusion, a foot strain, or a stress fracture. I would rest the foot as much as possible for a few days, wear a good supportive stiff soled shoe when walking, ice the painful area from time to time, and take an anti-inflammatory. If pain does not resolve after a few days, I would see a podiatrist. ...Read more

The bottom of my foot near my heel is very painful and I can't put my full weight on it. Ibuprofen not helping?

The bottom of my foot near my heel is very painful and I can't put my full weight on it. Ibuprofen not helping?

Plantar fasciitis??: Your heel pain is a protective mechanism designed to limit the amount of pressure and damage to your heel. If you continue to walk on it the damage will increase and cause further pain. Taking the ibuprofen may aid in some of the reactive inflammation but it does not attack the problem, in fact it may only mask the problem. You need to have an x-ray and evaluation to assess the true problem. ...Read more

The best advice is to have the foot evaluated and X-rayed. ...Read more

Deep Purple!!: Since you are having a problem with one toe, it is more than likely that you have managed to traumatize the toe. Black is sometimes confused with a deep purple blue color indicative of bleeding. It seems reasonable to have the toe evaluated and perhaps imaged to better understand the true nature of your problem. ...Read more
