Additional Details
Should I put ice on it?

try moving your toes or your ankle , if you can't then its broken

If your foot was broken you could NOT walk on it. You could have a crack or a chip

There is no to tell with out a x-ray there are so many type o fx. do not out ice on it the pain will get worse. you can put hot compresses to minimize the swelling. raise your foot to hart level as well.

You can't kick anything is a very good way to tell.

Domino's Mom
Go to an ER!

You realize that if it is broken (which you would only know through an x-ray) it could heal deformed unless a doctor resets it.

The others are right that you would be in more pain though, I broke my arm and it was HORRIBLE! It swelled the size of a balloon too.

See a Doctor or Podiatrist.
Get an X-Ray if needed.

Sorry, but the only way to tell for sure is an Xray

go to a nurse

Soon Mommy OF TWINZ .!!!
well be very gentle and try moving it around in a couple of circles and then if ur in way to much pain to handle then if u don`t want to go to tha doctor then see what u can do yo self!! ......i hope that helps u out!!

Carmen 4 josh
call a taxi and let them take you to a hospital and get it checked out! make shore you go with a friend so that they can help you into a wheelchair! hope you feel better soon!

I going to tell you to go to the doctor because that is what you need to do. You need x-rays.

Princess Ann
Its probably just sprained, if it were broken you would be in alot of pain right now. I know you said don't tell me to go to the doctor but I would just to be on the safe side. If it doesn't hurt that much then its not broken.

u wouldn't walk or move it at all if it's broken !! :/

If it was broken....trust me you would know!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE PAIN IS UNBEARABLE!

U2 Sucks
Hit it with a hammer. That way for sure it'll be broken.

if it don't hurt don't fix it

it's probably not broken... don't worry about it until it gets really bruised and swollen if it's not hurting you... then you will have to go get an x-ray...

alex h
your foot will get very swollen and you cant walk on it because it hearts and it will take a long time to stop swelling up

I know I'm at the end of a very long list of responses, but a quite a few of them were wrong.

First, if your foot is broken, you may be able to walk on it and wiggle your toes. What matters is the severity of the fracture and if it is displaced. Usually, there is at least a nagging pain that lasts longer than a few days. I had a friend with a "stress fracture" that did not cause any bruising or swelling, but hurt consistently for a couple of weeks.

Also, if you heard a pop, you may have forced a joint to move unnaturally (similar to popping your knuckles). You may not have broken your bones or even had any soft tissue damage (sprain/strain). If it stretched too much when it popped, you could result with strained muscles or ligaments. When this has happened with me or people I know, you can sometimes feel the pain into your calf and easily recognize where the soft tissue is that was stressed. You can have a lot of bruising and swelling with this, but it is usually hard to walk.

Anyway, if I were in your situation, I would not go to the doctor or a nurse. If it's not hurting that bad, just take it easy for a few days and take an anti-inflammatory/pain reliever. I worked in an ER for a couple of years, and that is what doctors prescribe even for mild stress fractures, though sometimes they give you one of those giant booties to wear, but I would rather just leave it up to me to take it easy than to wear one of those.

So, my advice: don't bother with the doctor. Take it easy. If it's hurting, don't do it. If it doesn't hurt, you're probably fine. Take something for possible inflamation. If it hasn't improved after 4-5 days, consider asking a doctor.

It will swell if its broken

go to the ER and ask to x-ray your foot

if u go to the doctor and he tells u your foot is broke....its broke

Dan The Man
If you can't move your foot or your toes, it is broken, and if you are experiencing extreme pain, it could be broken.

Or if you have an x-ray machine at home you could take an x-ray.


Watch for if it swells up or bruises because that is an indicator that its broke. You may have just cracked a knuckle or something though.
