As per your history, it may be due to fracture.

For further assessment, you may require X-ray or affected foot after orthopedician consultation.

Restrict foot movements. Use support while walking.

For pain, you can take tablet acetaminophen.

In the case of fracture, you may require surgical intervention after consultation.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
