Pain after toe stubbed very hard, tender to touch. Changing to grey color. Chance of broken toe?

I believe I may have broken my toe- the one next to my big toe. I stubbed it very hard and have since been in pain. I can not bend the toe, and it is tender to the touch. It also appears to be changing to a subtle grey-ish color. I don t want to overreact and go to the hospital of its nothing, but the pain is extremely distracting. Is there a chance my toe is broken?

Chances of fracture are definitely there.
You must go the hospital and get it x-rayed.
Take some anti inflammatories like ibuprofen 400 mg three times till you get the x-ray done.
Treatment ranges from buddy strapping to surgery depending upon the magnitude of injury.
