In brief: Broken Foot

Although there is great variation in how a broken foot can appear clinically the classic signs are: swelling, bruising, pain and inability to walk on it.
If you cannot put weight on the foot, then an x ray is probably needed. In the meantime, take an anti-inflammatory and ice/elevate the foot above the heart.
