Yesterday walking the dogs the stupid spaniel dropped a ball right in front of me and my right foot landed ont he ball and I went flying, the lovely man I was walking with caught me so no fall. No pain, carried on walking walked around all day with absolutly no problem. Went to bed last night and woke up in the middle of the night in pain, like my foot was stretched out and I needed to flex it but it hurt to flex. This morning I can hardly weight bear, it is swollen but not much and red. It is on the inside of my foot sort of below and in front of the ankle bone and hurt when I touch only that specific area but pain radiates when I weight bear.
I have taken some ibuprofen and hoping it will just go away, please tell me it is just bruised.

A&E or minor injuries.

Sounds like you need an XR.

its probably a sprain, but you need to get it checked!

it seems to have eased a lot with pain killers so going to prescribe myself a sofa day.

Ouch! Personally I would get it checked out and seek an x-ray. However, you do need to ice it to help with the swelling. I had a horrendous ligament related knee injury sustained while doing the Moonwalk don't ask and the recommendation was 10 minutes of icing every hour. It really helped so did wine. Get well OP!

How's your poorly foot tonight OP?

It's ok actually, just feels like a pulled muscle now, odd, took full ibuprofen and iced it all day.
