I've been running absolutely pain-free for many years.
But last month , while i was in the kitchen trying to get something
from the shelf, a heavy bottle toppled and dropped on my feet,
landing on one toe.
The part of the toe that the bottle hit had *** congestion,
and slight pain.
I thought time will heal it and so i didn't care about it
(not even putting any cream on it to speed up the recovery)
Now it's more than a month now, the toe still feels uncomfortable.
I still run but feel that the foot whose toe was bruised don't feel
the same anymore, as it is
weaker (during running) and at times that toe does have
some naggling pain (not actually very painful , but an itching/burning
When I look at the toe carefully, i could see there's still black
marks (maybe left by the *** congestion ). When i press on it
hard, it's a bit painful
Is this normal, i.e. it will be uncomfortable after having such
bruises, even years after (i'm 45 . will the effect of accidental injury
stay longer than young people ?).
Any treatment to help to make the foot feel as before ?
