24hrs ago I damaged my foot surfing. I twisted over the top of my right foot. No impact of the foot occured but I have a lot of pain coming from the top of the foot. I spent two hours in casualty last night but was advised that no break could be seen on the x ray of the metatarsal (2nd -3rd). The doctor was a bit dismissive but this morning I have struggled to walk and the pain is worse. Am I right in thinking that the X-rays should have been taken whilst standing up? This wasn’t the case. Would it pose any problems to the recovery if I waited for 5 days to evaluate the pain then? I’m concerned that I’ve damaged the lisfranc joint at the top of the metatarsal which requires a quick response to treatment. Should I go and see my GP or see if the pain subsides first?
Thanks in Advance,
