Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Need to clarify, exactly when did you experience this foot injury? After an injury, have you ever checked your complaint directly to a doctor? Is the swelling particularly conspicuous? Does the swelling feel hard or soft when pressed? After pressing, does the swelling return to normal or does it remain curved?
In general, foot injuries from being crushed by concrete are not a mild condition. Concrete which is generally quite heavy and strong can cause serious injury to the legs, whether visible or not. As for the swelling that you are experiencing at this time, it could be related to the injury you experienced before, although it can also arise from other causes. Here we describe some of the possible causes of leg swelling:
Injuries, such as those that cause edema (seepage of interstitial fluid), hematoma (blood clot under the skin), joint dislocation (shift), fractures - often present with extreme pain and limited movement Long-term effects after injury, such as malunion (usually occurs due to a broken bone that is not treated properly so that it heals imperfectly forming a lump or swelling) Infection, can be related to injury (eg osteomyelitis) or not (eg abscess, cellulitis) Benign or malignant tumors around the legs Arthritis, eg rheumatoid arthritis, gout. Heart, kidney, liver disorders. Normal leg shape variations, etc. Knowing which of the above conditions affects the swelling of your feet needs to be done by direct examination. In some cases, other investigations are also needed as a support, for example x-rays, ultrasound, arthroscopy, examination of joint fluids, and so on so that the correct diagnosis can be made. Therefore, in order to rule out the possibility of a dangerous condition, we urge you to consult a doctor or a surgeon directly.
In the meantime, you should not massage, massage, or squeeze excessively the puffiness that appears. If you experience pain, even if it's mild, try using an ice cube to relieve it. Elevate your legs while sleeping, for example by propping up a pillow. Always use comfortable footwear, soft padding, and fit the size of your feet. Not to forget, limit activities that are prone to causing recurrent injuries to the feet.
