I dropped the metal head of an old corded vacuum on my foot near the big toe joint. It has been inflamed for 3 days, can put pressure on it but get sharp pain that last the entire day. The pain goes away after I take a nap but resumes when I walk and rub the injured area.

Should I go to a hospital to get it checked out?

Yes you should definitely go to the hospital and get it checked out as a fracture should be ruled out For pain relief medicine at the mall and nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as ibuprofen can be used for now
