I landed flat footed on concrete from a jump ~10 ft up and felt a pain in my foot. The next morning I had significant trouble placing weight on the heal, but this began to subside within 5 or so days. Additionally I had no bruising or swelling of any noticeable amt. Because it began to subside and the lack of typical symptoms, I decided it may be ok and i may have just bruised it. Now 3 wks since my jump, the pain is still on my heel but only really when it impacts something (e.g., running, but not walking). I still have some localized spots of pain elsewhere in my foot, but these have hardly been debilitating. Additionally, I have begun to feel a tenderness in my achilles occassionally (not usually when walking.. but again if I try to run, iI will feel it there).
I am wondering if there is cause for alarm given my symptoms, which seems minor. However, I want to avoid a chronic condition and return my foot to full health (I need it for my work). Any suggestions on what to do? If I should seek medical advice, should I go to my primary care or to a specialist? Or could I expect the pain to continue to subside over the next 2 or so weeks?
I am a 24 year old in full health.
