Could my foot be broken?
I realize that everyone will answer "Go to the doctor!" when I ask this question, but since I've never broken a bone before I thought I'd ask here before I do to see if anyone else who is either an expert or who had something similar happen to them can give me some insight. I stumbled while walking down the stairs this morning, my right ankle rolled outward, I heard/felt a disgusting crunch, then I fell with a lot of my weight on my foot. It hurt really bad but after a few minutes I was able to stand up and walk. I do have to limp a bit though, and the top right side of my foot close to the ankle hurts quite a bit when I put weight on it, or if I press on it. It doesn't hurt too bad when I'm sitting or not moving my foot, and I AM still able to walk on it (gingerly). However I am currently on fairly strong anti-inflammatories and pain killers for a herniated disc in my back (I know - just take me out and shoot me! LOL!), so I'm fairly certain that any pain I may be feeling in my foot would be diminished considerably because of the medication. I'm just wondering if it's possible that it's broken if I can still walk on it and I'm not in constant pain when there isn't weight being put on my foot, or if maybe it's just badly bruised or something. It is swollen a little bit, but not enough to be alarming. That crunching sound sure didn't sound very pleasent though! I'm wondering if I should go to the doctor ASAP or if it can wait until early next week as I already have an appointment with an orthopaedist for my back problems. Thanks!

I would go to the doctor today. If you have an appointment scheduled with an orthopaedist for your back, that's what he will have time for. (They don't usually do "regular" broken bones) See a General practitioner.

Yes, it's probably broken. I broke my foot about a year and a half ago and could still walk on it with some pain. They gave me a boot cast which was much better than having to be on crutches for six weeks. I would see the doctor ASAP.

your meds could be certainly helping with pain and swelling.i say put some ice on it and head to the doctor.
