Eddie has PDD NOS - so he does not speak. He is 3.5 and tnoight he was playing and he fell and is now refusing to walk - he has been laying/sitting on the sofa all night, if we even go to put him on the floor to walk he refuses and wont put his leg on the ground .... we can bend his foot/toes all sorts of ways - his foot got stuck under the sofa when he fell and he seems tender on the top and its getting black and blue Im trying not to freak and think something is broken, how would I know? Wouldnt he be crying or in pain? He sure isnt acting like anything is wrong aside from not wanting to walk on itAnswer Question

Take him to the ER. If you wait around and decide to take him later on then they may question you as to why you waited knowing he would not walk on it after an injury.
I have worked on a Pediatric unit before and some children just are not going to show pain like you would expect. We had one little girl come into the ER who had broken her arm and her mom said she had no clue because she didn't cry...she brought her to the ER because she noticed her daughter wasn't using her arm like the other.
