right foot pain

about two weeks ago i slipped and twisted my right foot underneath me. I went to the doctor and they took x-rays and said that it wasnt broken and that I possibly tore a ligament in my foot. I was given an ankle brace to wear. Its been two weeks now and my foot isnt feeling any better, there is intense pain all down the right side of my foot when i walk or try to move it from side to side, and there is this spot on the right side that looks like a little bump of swelling. I just went to the doctor again and was told just to take more pain med and to come back in two weeks. Im nervous that im doing more damage to my foot than any good and i dont want to cause permanant injury. Do you think I should go for a second opinion or should I just wait it out and hope it heals itself?

A layer of gel combined with a foot cover to help protect metatarsals and toes from friction and pressure. It also ideal for cushioning the ball of foot and provides warmth for people suffering from arthritis or poor circulation to the toes.
