Hurt toe
« on: April 25, 2008, 06:16:30 PM »
So I lazy over a rail with a maybe 2 foot drop and slap out, feel the initial pain. Now it only hurts when I try to bend it, but it hurts a lot. It is the toe to the left of the pinky on the right foot.

Course of action?

If it still hurts a lot with any movement at all it may be a break in which case you should probably get it checked out (preferably sooner than later).

Ice. After swelling goes down, get your flexibility back.

I had something similar happen to me with my big toe. It was a fracture and I never had it looked at. Now I have a huge calcification on the joint that looks like a ball on my toe. I can't bend my toe and have to take this into consideration when buying some shoes.

That being said, the injury was really painful and I was a dufus for not getting it looked at. Now if I ever wanted to bend my toe again, they would have to scrape the calcification off in surgery.

Don't want to scare you. Just monitor it extremely carefully and if it is really painful, like Steve said, get it checked ASAP

Thanks, seems like I'll be getting it checked out soon enough.

If it were a break would it be sensitive to touch? Or just movement? Atm just movement aggravates it, but we'll see. I taped it to another toe, so I guess I'll just check on it daily for progress =/.
