Foot pain 3 weeks after injury
About 3 1/2 weeks ago, I cross-stepped while running sideways (I think I did something like rolling my ankle) during a volleyball game, and ended up injuring my foot. The top part of my foot, over where the ball of it is, has been hurting ever since. It doesn't hurt when I'm walking though. It hurts whenever I put a good amount of weight on it (like when I'm sprinting, jumping, leaning on to it), or when I curl my toes up. I just recently made the volleyball team and have been going to 3 hour practices. I don't exactly want to tell the coach that it hurts doing the sprints/hitting/blocking drills that involve a lot of weight on that area of my foot, because we're just starting to condition and get into shape for the season, but also don't want to injure it further. I had an appt set up for tomorrow, but cancelled it due to my school orientation in the morning.
Should I reschedule going to the doctors? And what can they do for it if I do go, that I already am not doing (I've been icing it on and off, wearing an ACE bandage on it from time to time)? Or if I keep icing it on and off, will it stop hurting eventually? Next Monday would make it a full month since the injury..
