Sharp pain one of the feet on jumping, difficulty in walking, vein popping out of the foot. Remedy?

Today I jumped really high and when I landed to the floor, one of my feet had really sharp pain . It hurt really bad for a few seconds, then I ignored it. Couple minutes later when I was walking around my house my foot was really hurting when I walked. I noticed a long vein or two popping out on my foot. What should I do?

Thanks for writing in.
It seems that you have suffered a trauma and the abnormal appearance of the veins could either be due to an injury to the veins leading to a hematoma ( collection of blood) or a sprain which can press the veins and make them look for prominent.
I suggest you apply diclofenac gel on the local area, do some hot fomentation and apply a tight crepe bandage around the foot. You should have relief in 1-2 days. If it does not help, please see a physician who can order a Xray and rule out a fracture.
Hope this helps.
