Broken? - but not that bad
I was doing a handstand yesterday when I didn't check what was behind me and ended up whacking my toe against the coffee table. The pain was really not that bad and honestly manageable, it just hurts when I put pressure on that side of my foot. There seems to be no major swelling/ bruising, so I was wondering if you thought it would be okay wrapped up?
I've been trying to convince my parents it's nothing because my brother is ill and we are currently doing loads of checkups on him and my parents are really worried about him. This is just so incredibly annoying it's the holidays and I planned weeks of sports. Perhaps because it doesn't seem to be that inflamed it will heal sooner? What is your main advice I don't know what to do?
If there is no major swelling, bruising or inflammation, it should be fine and heal in time, however, you should see your Podiatrist for further evaluation if pain persists or if you experience discomfort when trying to rest or sleep. You may also need to rest from sport until healing occurs.
Please let your parents know if pain persists.
