In brief: Time to call doctor

When there is trauma, most of us pamper ourselves or tough it out and wait for pain to go away.
If it does not, however, it is best to call one's primary care doctor. That doctor may then refer for xrays or a visit to a foot or orthopedic specialist. If the injury occurred at work, it is important to ask each doctor to document the injury for your hr people or boss.

In brief: See a physician

If you are still having pain after an acute injury a month later, i would recommend that you see a physician that can fully evaluate and make specific treatment recommendations.
