Hi all,
I fell in a hole yesterday and now the side of my foot is black and blue and swelled. Ankle is fine, it is more the side of my foot and having some problems walking. Also have problem moving my last 3 toes, in other words I can't wiggle my toes. We are on a business trip so we do not know any doctors here. Do you think it would be ok to wait till we get home Friday to see my doctor, or should I try to find a clinic here? We have insurance but not sure if it will pay. Should I call insurance company first? Hubby is at work all day so I am sitting in room with it propped up and taking Excedrin. Any suggestions?

Go to an ER. Your insurance certainly would cover that right? At least they could Xray it and splint it until you get home.

Have decided to wait until we get home. Cannot get into any clinics around here, because I am not an established patient. Hate the thought of an emergency room!! So... going to get some crutches and stay off from it for a few days. Not doing anything anyway but sitting in this room since he has the car.

Why not call your doctor - maybe he/she can give you referrals.

Finally found a clinic that would see me ( actually our insurance company found it). Not broken, pulled some ligaments. Dr put a splint on it and I have to use crutches for a couple of weeks. Thanks for the input!! Now if I don't kill myslef while trying to use crutches I should be fine LOL!!
