  • Good thing you did NOT take some of the advice here and you went to the ER. Not going could have caused more problems seeing your foot was broken. Sometimes, when there is a break there isn't much pain. My cousin broke his shin and didn't know it until the next day when he took a bath and the water hit the break.

    Anytime you are in a "hell of a lot of pain", you should go to the ER. Hope your foot heels soon and with no other problems.

  • I wouldn't go to the ER, maybe make an appt. with your doc. It's probably not anything to worry to much about, soak your foot in warm water with epsom salts and see if that helps some :)

  • Call your doctor on monday. It is not an emergency.

  • I would, it could be an infection or something is still in there.

  • Something hard, like a floor? Or a nail? Very different! If it's swollen and painful, and not getting any better, might be worth going in. Good luck!

  • I think if it was broken you would surely know by now. That would be pretty painful. I'm with Kayaiden on the soaking idea.

  • Maybe make an appointment for Monday.

  • ER for that? Umm call your dr. on Monday. If you put up with it this long what's Monday going to matter? I mean it's not like your not breathing or fever, just hurting like hell you say. Call your doc MONDAY. Good luck and feel better soon. Hugs
