Thanks for writing to us.
The appearance of a bruise and an extreme pain on weight bearing is likely to be due to a bone injury in the area. You need to get an X-ray of the area done for exact diagnosis. Avoid weight bearing and keep the foot elevated till then.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
