When I fell my foot fell over itself and than it twisted. When it twisted I heard a snap.At first I devoloped a big goose egg on the side of my foot. The swelling was at the widest part of my foot on the outside of my foot up across the top. Within minutes,my whole foot was huge.
I have never had anything wronge with my foot before.
I have sharp shooting pains and a all over ache across the top of my foot. The bottom of my instep aches also. I can not move my toes well at all.
I can not bear weight on my foot yet and it has been 8 days.
My toes feel like they are flared but they are not.
The hospital said my foot was to swollen to see a break-the bones were pushed tightly together.
It is wrapped in a ace bandage and I do elevate it and put ice on it.
I also take Aleve and asprin for the pain.
Thank you for any help you can give!
I google broken metatarsal and I think you may be right.
I feel better just knowing what it may be. I do not have insurance and did not what to go to the doctor just for her to say it was a sprain.
Thank You very much!
You are right, I went to a podiatrist and I do have a jones fracture. I am in a air boot and on crutches(no weight) for 6 weeks and then he will look again.I just wanted to let you know-Thank You very much for your help!!!
