Stub on the toe causing bruising and fading, difficulty in moving toes, bending, swelling and stiffening in foot. Remedy?

I stubbed my toe two weeks ago. It hurt a lot and bruised then faded. But as time has gone on it has started to hurt more and more. I can move my toes and it hurts when I bend them and my foot it swelling and stiff. I have been icing my foot and keeping it elevated when I can. I work on my feet all day and am worried that I might have broken my foot
