Felt hot and nauseated after a fall. Foot injured. Can I walk properly?

A few years back, I jumped to ground from approx. 4 feet up. When I landed I heard a severe snap or pop, loud enough to hear over a tractor running beside me. I instantly felt hot and nauseous. My right foot was noticeably pointing outward. I put weight on it and twisted till I felt it snap again. Swelling instantly. Had a solid black bruise from the outside of heel to base of pinky toe for weeks. No doctor, cast, or crutches. Hobbled till I could halfway walk again. Curious to know what I had done. Now its becoming difficult to walk correctly, progressively getting worse. What did I do and what should I do?

You had a terrible jump where you have broken your feet. You should have gone to the hospital and seek for orthopedist help.

Now, you should go and get your feet checked by orthopedist to try to repair at least, what it can be repaired. At least, to try to ease the pain.

Hope it helped!
