    I hit my left foot pretty hard last night on my desk, and this morning and now it has been killing me. It is a dull, aching pain that, when I touch, hurts most from about the centre of my foot, behind the big toe, to just inbetween the big toe and index toe. Also, when i touch just at the base of my foot, to the left, where it feels like the ankle bone meets the base of the leg, it is very tender and hurts to touch.

    I cannot arch the big toe back, or when standing, lean outwards on the foot, without it hurting too much. It also hurts when rolling my foot around on both its heel, and toes.

    However, there is no swelling, and when walking, it only hurts when im moving the foot. When the foot is laid flat on the floor the floor it doesn't hurt, but moving the foot after it has been laid out hurts.

    I am completely perplexed, bruising maybe?

    I hear there are trained professionals whose job is to advise and assist with healthcare matters such as these. Perhaps if you can track one down then they may be able to tell you what is wrong.

    Indeed there are, and they get paid a princely sum for doing just that. However, I didn't want to place a unnecessary burden on an already overworked system with my potentially mediocre podiatry problems.

    Well, some potentially very knowledgable people on here could guess as to whether it's bruised, broken etc, but ultimately you won't be sure until a doctor actually has a look at it.

    I'll give you exclusive picture rights to the foot for 6 months.

    Sounds good, but you said there was no swelling, so i may have to photoshop it to sex-it up a little - how about some massive swelling, black and blue bruising, and a protruding bone. Also, to make it sale-able, we really gotta try to imply that it was someones fault - should we say that Jeremy Kyle threw a desk at you.... i think that might work? lol
