    ankle and behind toes pain
    husseinosman posted:
    injured my leg in an motorcycle accident the motorcycle is heavy and it hit my ankle by all its weight , it swelled and hurted so much that i couldn't put all my weight on it so i went to the hospital and had an xray for my foot and everything was fine there was no fractures and the doctor gave me an antibiotic(Airtal 100mg) and Panadol joint , after 3 days of the accident the swallow reduced so much and i can walk on it with a little pain but a purple blueish started to show off behind, between, my toes . So these turn in colours made me worried about it so any suggestions please??

    What you describe sounds like a bruise (you can read more here ). If this coloring worries you, worsens, doesn't seem to be going away, or doesn't sound like what is described in the article above, it may help to get your doctor to take a look and make sure that something more serious isn't going on. Please let us know how you are doing!
