Pain on the top of foot when applying pressure. X-ray normal, no swelling or bruising. Any ideas ?

I slip and fell on my foot and have pain on the top of my foot when applying any kind of pressure (walking). Had an xray done on monday and said that i didnt break anything but today friday, my pain doesnt seem to be subsiding at all, infact in feels either the same or worse. a little swelling not much and hardly any bruising. i just thought i would a little better by now. when resting and not applying pressure i only feel a nuisance pain. I just fear the xray might have missed something. should i go back to my doctor or have i not given it enough time?

Thanks for posting your query.

Your xray of foot is normal. So it might be soft tissue injury.

Ice the affected area and take anti-inflammatory drug like mortin to reduce pain and inflammation. Avoid lifting and rest well.

It generally heals in 7-10 day with rest. If it pesist after that , consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the repeat X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance.
