Severe pain, swelling in foot after hitting cabinet. No relief with ice, heat, medication. Suggestions?

Hi I kicked a cabinet about 2 months ago and have had very severe pain in my foot . There is minimal swelling and no bruising but the pain is constant. Nothing seems to help. I ve tried ice, heat, advil , alleve, motrin. It hurts to walk and the pain goes from my toes all the way to the bottom half of my calf . It is especially bad on the outer most side bone of my left foot, the arch and around the achilles tendon . I have no health insurance and have not been able to have it seen and the pain is getting worse with time. Any suggestions?

Thanks for your query.
It might be soft tissue injury or fracture.
Without X-ray, it is difficult to differentiate a fracture from others. I suggest you to consult an orthopaedician nearby for a detailed examination. You may get the X-ray of the area affected under his/her guidance.
In the interim, yo can take anti-inflammatory drug like motrin to reduce pain and inflammation. Avoid lifting and rest well.

I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
