Blood Clot?

about a month while exercising I dropped a weight on my foot. It was swollen and stiff for about a week and pain began to fade and mobility returned. However, one morning I got up from bed after sleeping and went to walk to the bathroom and as I turned while bearing weight it felt like I was being stabbed where the weight fail. Still has discoloration and pain to the touch. Is this a clot or where it is healing and overlapping?

    Hello and thank you for your question.

    Without seeing your foot it is difficult for me to say exactly what may be causing your pain. After you dropped the weight on your foot did you ever get an X-ray to rule out a fracture? This is something I would have done as a fracture is likely depending where on the foot the weight dropped and how heavy the weight was.

    Since it takes 6 – 8 weeks for a fracture to heal it is possible it is still not a healed fracture. This may be why your pain still persists. Bruising is still possible at this time without suspicion of a blood clot. If you do not have a Podiatrist you can go to an Urgent Care to have your foot X-rayed.

    I hope this helps!
