Fifth metatarsal?


A few days ago, while on vacation, someone stepped on the top of my foot, actually jumped on it – on a dance floor.
It was sore and bruised – I can walk but I tend to baby that side of the foot – it is in the area of the fifth metatarsal.
It is not nearly as sore as when it first happen and the swelling has gone down, sometimes I don’t feel any pain.
Only when I try to put on certain shoes that puts pressure on the injury.
Anyone had anything like this – I have not been to a dr yet.
