Foot pain after Shin Injury

About 2 1/2 weeks ago I got hit in the shin with a softball. The shin was/is bruised and swollen. The inside and outside of the foot also  became bruised, I got an X-Ray and the shin was not fractured. Now, 2 1/2 weeks later the top of my foot, and front of my ankle has a sharp pain whenever I walk, and my toes have begun to twitch. Do you have any idea what could be causing this sharp, shooting foot pain?

you may have injured the nerves that course from the leg down to the feet.  
anti-inflammatories can help.  also, consumption of vit b can help repair some nerves.  if the problem doesn't improve, see a podiatrist to get further testing.
