Foot injury, painful, bruising, hurts to walk. Should it be checked?

I think I broke my big toe? Today I was about to get a pedi when I was adjusting myself in the chair a my foot slipped and bashed really hard into the side. It really hurt but I continued even though it hurt really really bad. I know the only thing they will do is tape it but should I go and get it checked out anyway. It did bruise all most right away and hurts to walk. Should I get it checked out.

Hello Dear
Thanks for your query.

Yes you should get it checked up by an orthopedic surgeon.

XRay of foot is needed.

If there is fracture , immobilisation is needed.

The pain may be muscle pain too. Taking Aceclofenac-Paracetamol combination tablet will help reduce the pain.Serratiopeptidase will decrease the swelling.
But don't take medicine without doctor's prescription.Get a medical check up.

Hope this helps.

Take care.

Hi friend
Welcome to Health Care Magic

It is wiser to get it checked anyway.
A complete fracture may need immobilisation. A simple crack need is easy to deal with.
The discomfort can also be from the bruise.
You have not stated your age - increasing age may need investigations for osteoporosis.

Take care
Wishing speedy recovery
God bless
Good luck
