    About a week ago I was packing for college and dropped a large suitcase on my foot. It hit right where my big toe meets the rest of my foot. It immediately swelled up and turned purple. I could move my foot and walk with some discomfort. Now, most of the swelling has gone down but it still hurts to walk. Also, a large, hard bump formed where I dropped the suitcase and the skin on it is still purple. I’ve been icing it and elevating it with no relief. Should I go to urgent care and get it checked out or wait it out?

    It probably does need an x-ray to have it checked out.
    But, if the symptoms are steadily improvement then probably wait a few more days and see how it goes.
