Doctor :   Hi,
Doctor :   Dr XXX here
Doctor :   How can i help you?
User :   Should I type my question in again?
Doctor :   yes, please. i dont see a question
User :   About 3 weeks ago, I stepped barefooted, very forcefully, onto a hard plastic toy. The following day, the ball of my foot, at the base of my 3 inside toes swelled noticibly and when I am barefoot, my foot is painful to walk on. Wearing a shoe and a sock is comfortable. My foot is no worse and no better in the 3 weeks, but I am wondering if I should see a podiatrist to see if I developed a cyst. I think that I injured the nerve.
Doctor :   ok, did you had a contusion or an open wound ?
User :   No
Doctor :   why do say that nerve may be injured , any numbness you have around the contusion ?
User :   Now that you mention it, yes, there is numbness on the ball of my foot and slightly in the ends of the three toes.
Doctor :   and fo sure the numbness do not say of nerve injury
Doctor :   i suggest you to visit a orthopedician
User :   Thank you.
Doctor :   a detailed examination will be helpful
Doctor :   and he may ask for an xray too
User :   than you
Doctor :   apply cold compresses
User :   i will
Doctor :   it will help to reduce the swelling
Doctor :   do you have pain ?
User :   Only when I walk barefooted.
Doctor :   ok,
User :   singing off
Doctor :   since its a weight bearing area it is not expected to heal soon
Doctor :   ok,
Doctor :   thanks for consulting
Doctor :   bye for now
Doctor :   ' take care
