Pain in foot, swelling. Normal X rays. Suggestions?

I think I have a facture of the foot, but my family Doctor could not see anything on the x-ray. They have me with crutches and a boot. The boot makes it hurt worse, I think, because of the swelling. It is in front of my heal and it goes from the bottom along to the side. I woke up with it last Tuesday morning. Who could find out what is really wrong with it?

Your pain could be due to various reasons- inappropriate size of the boot (due to swelling), early/excessive weight bearing on the injured foot etc.Hairline fractures on the foot are quite & goes undetected but requires adequate rest for healing.If the pain isn't subsiding/swelling is increasing I suggest you to take the opinion of your Orthopedician for further management.Hope this helps.Take care.
