It has happened before but not to that extent. Baby flew or tried to fly to my desk and after she was holding her food oddly. Like you, I said I would take her to the vet but a couple of hours later she seemed fine. Just watch her and see how it goes- hope it's nothing serious.

I've not had it happen before, but sometimes by guys will manage to hurt their foot on something, they hold it up tight for a while and then they're totally over it. I think it's a good idea you're taking her to the vet.

Birds tend to over exaggerate injuries. :p Don't worry too much. It's still a good idea to get it checked by the vet, if it's nothing then at least you'll have confirmation and be able to stop worrying. :)

Is she walking properly and perching normal? If yes then it's probably not anything serious. Relax. =) Here is an article (more detailed) on cold/hot feet. It's about budgies but also applies to tiels.
