Hurt foot while playing football. Having numbness, pain. Hurts to walk. Solution?

The other day I was playing football and fell on my foot in a way I have never done before and it immediately started to hurt but then the pain subsided for a while.. I went to sleep thinking it was going to get better and it never did, it just got worse.. It s a little swollen but it doesn t hurt to walk on, it just hurts when moving it to the sides and in a circle.. It progressively gets worse throughout the day.. Also, the day after it happened, my leg went numb and there were sharp pains in my numb leg.. What s wrong with my foot and what do I do about it?! My mom won t take me to the doctor and it s seriously painful at times.. She s also making me go to school and therefore, I m walking on it all day.. I don t know what to do.. Please help?

Thanks for posting your query.

It might be soft tissue injury, ligament injury or fracture.

Without X-ray, it is difficult to differentiate a fracture from others. I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance.

In the interim,apply ice packs to the affected area,anti-inflammatory drug like motrin to reduce pain and inflammation. Avoid putting weight and rest well.

Wishing you good health
