Hi, 10 weeks ago I injured my foot playing football. This came up with bruising and swelling on the side of my foot just below the big toe. I had it x rayed and nothing came up. It is still swollen and bruising still comes up now. Anyone have any idea what this could be other then a bruised bone. It looks like I have a bunion on my foot. Also when I am sat down for a period of time and go to walk it hurts even more but i can walk normally fine pain free at other times....This also cause pain on the other side of my foot
Welcome to the MedHelp forum!
This can be a tendon or ligament injury which can at times cause a ganglion to form. This can be diagnosed only by MRI. You can do alternate hot and cold fomentation and see if it helps. Please consult an orthopedic specialist. Take care!
