My foot is swollen and hurts so bad I cant walk, but it's not bruised. What is it?

Thank you for contacting IPFH. We do not diagnose or recommend medical treatments on line. Swelling and pain in the feet is not normal, and the best thing you can do now is to consult your primary care physician or a foot health professional. He or she can help determine the reason for the pain and swelling, and recommend appropriate remedies.

You can use our Foot Pain Self-Assessment Tool to identify some possible reasons for your pain, but understand that this is not a diagnostic tool, nor is it a substitute for consultation with a medical professional. Since there are multiple potential causes for your condition, and it is impacting your mobility and your quality of life, we recommend that you get professional medical attention at your very earliest opportunity. We hope your condition will soon be resolved.
