Brief Answer:
X ray needed

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on Health care magic.

You need to undergo an X ray of your foot in order to detect if a fracture has occurred. You need to visit a doctor who could carefully evaluate the X ray and correlate with his clinical findings. Depending upon the findings, plastering or compression bandaging may be necessary.

I would insist you not to ignore it.
