Numbness in feet, swollen feet. Applied ice. Should I have it checked?
I was walking around on the hard tile in house yesterday. Then sat down sewing and started to feel numbness in ball of right foot . When I looked I was shocked to see ball of foot swollen and purple and blue,2inches around the ball. Do not recall hitting it at all. Large broken blood vesse is apparent. Now it s 24 hrs. Later and it still looks awful. I have stayed off feet with ice on it and elevated. I am 67 yr. old female without any health problems. Should I have this checked by dr. Susan Grolemund
I would suggest you to get X ray to check if there is any bony injury. It is always safer as in above 60 in females bone are very brittle. Apply ice and Diclofenec ointment to ankle joint Apply compression bandage and keep it elevated over pillow.
