pain in ball of foot with bruising

3 weeks ago I developed an intense excruciating pain in the ball of my left foot which lasted about 5 minutes. I had not been barefoot nor had I stepped on anything. Within 15 minutes, it was swollen and blue. I iced it off/on for several hours and took ibuprofen. I thought it was a broken blood vessel because after the swelling subsided (the next morning) the ball of my foot was bruised and slightly sore, which lasted about 2 days. This morning, my foot has a slight intermittent ache in the same spot. Now I am wondering if there is something wrong with it? I am not a runner, nor am I overweight. I have never had a foot problem and I am 44 years old in good health. Thanks.
