8 days ago I competed in a karate competion, once I had finished my round of fights I noticed the top of my foot was swollen and painful. The pain increased, and when I got home I was having to walk on the outside of my foot and the pain was too bad just below the big toe. I iced it off and on, took anti-inflammatories and have not engaged in any sport since.
The next day it was really bruised and swollen at the base of the big toe, and throughout the week I have continued to ice and take meds to reduce the swelling and pain.
It is still swollen, but I am walking on it with discomfort. I have no idea what I may have done, as I can't pin point when it happened, but it was during a fight. I'm guessing the adrenaline kept me going, but it only started hurting when I stoppped.
I'm not sure whether its worth seeing a doctor, as its obviously not broken or anything like that, but I don't want to have a long term problem thats stop me training (I run aswell, so been off all sports for 8 days).
Any advise or information will be gratefully received. thanks
