I fell from about 8 feet and landed on my foot. The pain was almost unbearable. I went to the emergency room the next morning and after x-rays and waiting for a long period of time, the diagnosis was that I had a severe sprain. They wrapped my foot in an ace bandage, gave me crutches and sent me on my way. I am wondering if I could have possible torn the ligament/tendon in the top part of my right foor toward the inside. I don’t exactly want to return to the hospital if it is indeed just a sprain and will heal over time. My foot is a little bit swollen, with some bruising. I try to move my toes towards my leg as if i am flexing my foot and it is painful. Can anyone tell me other symptoms so I know if I need to return to the hospital, or will it just heal itself?
