About a week ago I fell down around 4 stairs and smacked my foot on the side of the wall and on the floor. It instantly swelled on the top part of my foot into a big lump and around the foot was swollen and bruised. I left it overnight and went to A&E (in the UK) where they took one look and decided to do an X-RAY.
Whilst the X-RAY was being done, it took longer than usual and I heard the radiographers chatting about it and they decided to get a second opinion from someone else. They did and then they sent me back to a&e where the doctor said they couldn't find a fracture so gave me some crutches and told me to try walk on it.
This was nearly a week ago, I am signed off work by my normal GP and given painkillers, however, I still can NOT walk on the foot, if so, its on the side of my foot but it really really hurts. It is still swelling up and still bruised, incredibly painful to touch.
The GP says she doesn't think they would of missed a broken bone on the X-RAY but it is so painful and sore I don't know what to do, do I go back to A&E and ask for another X-RAY?
Please can someone give me some advice.
Thank you in advance :-)
