Could my foot be fractured or just swollen?
I was playing football on concrete today and I was trying to intercept a jump catch but when I fell down the left side of my left foot landed wrong and now the left side of the foot is swollen but I continued to play because it didn’t hurt that bad at first but through out the day it kept getting worse I didn’t go to the nurses office because it wasn’t that bad but now I think I might have fractured it because it hurts when I try to extend my foot but it’s only the left side not on the toes neither mostly in the middle

You could have fractured a bone in your foot. Go to your doctor and get your foot x-rayed.

Only way to determine fracture is with xray

Sprains can be as painful as a break. You probably should have it x-rayed to be sure.

If you broke it you would nothave been able to continue to play. However a sprain you could. As the day goes on more inflammation builds up and it hurts more and more. Try the following...its called RICE
If that helps then its a sprain/strain injury. It will take time to heal but it will.
If it doesnt help, go to a doctor and have it xrayed

Your food could be either. There are these things called x-rays. Get one.
