Hi Anon,

Thank you so much for choosing EmpowHER and sharing your question! I am sorry that you are in so much pain! Before this happened did you have any sort of injury to that foot, any time when you stumbled or dropped something on it or just did something awkward and it ended up hurting?

You could be dealing with a small broken bone, even a stress fracture. The only way to really know is to go to the doctor. They can take an x-ray and give you a proper diagnosis. 

In the meantime, you can take an over the counter pain reliever and elevate your foot above your heart, apply compression and ice. You'll also want to check out this link for home remedies for minor foot pain. http://www.webmd.com/a-to-z-guides/toe-foot-and-ankle-injuries-home-treatment

Anon, did this help?
