    One week ago today a cabinet door slammed into the top of my left foot, with a good amount of force. At the time I had slip on flat shoes and no socks, so it also cut the skin. It bruised up almost instently and swelled up. It is still swollen and bruise and almost has a yellow tint around it. I can walk on it but it hurts, it also hurts to point and flew my foot. I went in a saw a specilist last week for something totally differnt and just asked her option. She said it might be fracture but that would be an odd place to have a fracture. So I haven't went in and been seen for it.

    Does it sound like I just hit it and it's just sore?

    Or does it sound like I should go in and have it looked at?

    Also a little about me. I am 27, type 1 diabtic for 6 yrs, somewhat over weight, no history of foot pain and/or issues, and I have had some recent high bs numbers.

    Thank you, Kristina

    I don't know what kind of doctor, much less a specialist could tell you that a bone was not fractured simply because of its location on the foot. But the more important advise I can offer to you is that any diabetic and especially a type I diabetic needs to have professional evaluation of his/her feet both as a routine and absolutely upon any injury to them. Certainly the doctor who is overseeing your diabetes has or should have impressed that upon you as part of his/her caring for your diabetes.
