What causes foot pain after a bone fracture?

I have a broken bone in my left foot it is a fifth metatarsal fracture it happened two days ago and since my foot is swollen I just have a soft wrap on the foot put on by my doctor. All last night I have been having these shooting pains on the right side of that foot and around the ankles could these be from the swelling being reduced by the wrap or is the wrap too tight?

if the wrap is too tight then your toes will turn cold and blue but I suppose this is not the case
the pain is due to the fracture,you will be having it for few more days as the fracture is healing and the swelling subsides.
hope you find this helpful
