possible broken foot

I’ve managed to hurt the top mid section of my foot (sorry I don’t know the medical terms) basically I was reaching to put something away in the cupboard and i heard a load snap sound like something had broken in my right foot I can barely put any weight on my foot , struggling to walk just wondering if its something to worry about as I don’t want to go to the hospital over nothing and waste their time if you know what I mean.
Thanks in advance

    Hello and thank you for your question.

    Do you currently have any weakness in your foot? Can you move you foot up/down and to the side without any weakness? If you cannot, then I’d see a Podiatrist to rule out any injury to the tendons.

    I would not suspect a fracture just from this movement however, if you are in that much pain then I would recommend having an X-ray done to rule out any bone pathology.

    In the mean time I would limit your activity as much as possible to allow the inflammation to decrease.

    Good luck!
