So I went to the Hospital because I ended up getting into and argument and my dumb ass decided to kick my trailer "seemed like a good idea at the time" so immediately following I went to put my foot on the ground applied pressure and feel in tears... I have my brother take my shoe laces off and get my shoe off of my foot it was swollen up like really bad and turning purple so I of course had my brother take me to the hospital about 15mins after the incident my foot had gone numb and the swelling kept getting worse and worse... So I go to the hospital told them what happened etc. So they took x-rays and on my way from x-ray room I asked the doctor if it was broken! She told me she was not allowed to tell me whether or not it was broken but it didn't look good has any one ever heard of this before I Know doctor patient confidentiality but I'm ur patient its my foot let me know right? So I'm waiting in the room the actual doctor on staff at the Er came to me sat down looked at my foot touched it and gave me an ice pack so I again asked if it was fractured/broken she said im going to look at x-rays now so about 20-25 mins go by she comes back into the room says it's not broken it's a contusion... Even though my toes are numb and i can't move them or apply pressure the pain is almost unbearable... The swelling was progressively getting worse the pain was not of a contusion it was and is not a throbbing feeling it is a constant almost needle like sharp pain in the center of my foot "which I have found on no website as a symptom" it's usually in short instances like almost a throbbing everyone says... Does anyone have any advice on what to do now? Cause the wrapped it in an ace bandage and told me to use the "rice" method for my healing process but I honestly think it's broken mabye they read the x-rays wrong? What should I do I do landscaping for a living a ride a motorcycle... Is there anyone who can diagnose or someone who has had this same experience and the doctor was right?
