im pretty sure i sprained my foot...?
i can not walk on it at all. i tried wearing an ace bandage and it did nothing at all. it still hurt just the same when i walked. my foot isnt swollen or bruised or anything and it doesnt hurt when i move it or touch it. but when i stand or walk its like a sharp pain and i nearly fall over. its on the outside side of my left foot. any idea if it is a sprain or not?

A sprain is an injury of the tendons or ligaments in a joint, there are tendons on the top of your foot so it possible to sprain a foot. If you have a sprain though it hurts to move the joint, both actively and passively (moving it normally vs. moving it with your hands while the muscles are relaxed). Sprains also typically involve noticeable swelling. If it doesn't hurt to move its not a sprain. A fracture or bone bruise are possibilities. Try alternating ice and heat for awhile and if it doesn't go away go see a doc.Source(s): I'm certified in first aid.

To be honest, I'm not sure you can sprain your foot. The only thing I've heard of spraining are joints (wrist, ankle, shoulder, etc) However, it could be a fracture, a real break, or just a bone bruise. Go into the doctor.

no problem -treat the pain, avoid weight bearing, keep it elevated, and follow up with your orthopedist.

just twisted it. have some one pull on it and pop it in or get to the doctor and get an x-ray.
