one week ago i trapped my foot under my bed and lost my balance and fell over. the pain i got in my foot was really sever and i could not do anything for about 30 mins. after that i could not even lightly touch my foot and if i did it caused pain to go up my leg and every now and then the pain would cause my let to twitch on its own. about 4 days later a bruise started to appear. i can walk on it but the more i use it the worse the pain gets. if i apply gentle pressure to that area of my foot i still get a great deal of pain.
