Bruised painful toe after an injury. What to do?

i dropped a heavy bottle of juice onto the top of my foot two weeks ago now and it is still very painful, it bruised for a couple days but now all the bruising is gone and there is a small swollen area where the pain still is. i have been taking pain killers but they dont seem to be strong enough to completley get rid of the pain i can still feel an aching pain when i have taken them. what do you think i should do?

Welcome to health care magic
Dear patient, if your pain , swelling and tenderness in an area of the foot is still persisting after 2 weeks of fall of a heavy juice bottle on your foot, then there is a chance that you might have got a hairline or so fracture of your metatarsal bone, or it may simply be a soft tissue injury , both will take few more weeks to heal but you should see an orthropedician who will get an X-RAY of the foot done to rule out boney injury and will help you accordingly
wish you speedy recovery
