Hi. We can continue after this but from your description it's almost certain you have a fracture. You may even have more than one--one or two of the toe bones and most likely the 5th metatarsal of the body of your foot.

You really need to see a doctor about this right away for an exam and x-rays since you at least need a cast and you might actually need surgery for this
