Hello Surya, Thank you for the question.
Are you in addition to being sick, you have other complaints such as bruising, wounds, swelling, difficulty moving your legs? An impact on the foot due to an accident can cause the following conditions:
injury to muscles, tendons, or ligaments
injury to blood vessels and nerves
The four conditions mentioned above can cause pain complaints. If this complaint has lasted for 1 week, especially if accompanied by movement disorders, please see your doctor. The doctor needs to examine the affected leg to determine the cause and the next appropriate treatment.
You can warm compresses on the area of the leg that hurts. Avoid over-activities that involve your sore feet. You can take paracetamol if the pain worsens.
Hopefully this information is useful.
