A week or so ago I jumped out of my boat about a 2' drop onto wet sand. I didn't twist it or bend it the wrong way. It didn't bother me until the next day and seems to be getting worse day by day. I guess I will have no other choice but to see a doctor. Could my diabetes be the cause for this not healing itself ?

I also don't know if I should see my endocrinologist or a foot specialist. Any insight would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Tim

Is there any cut or puncture mark on your foot? Signs of infection? If so, see a wound care specialist.

(I will give you the same advice that I rec'd from the DC family when a wheelchair ran over my toe. If it still bothers you GO TO THE DOCTOR.

Howdy Timmer!
Sorry you're experiencing this. I think I would start with your PCP and then maybe try the Pedo or maybe even an ortho. Perhaps your PCP should suggest your next stem (no pun intended)
