Hi,

You need to get an x-ray of your foot. There is a possibility that you may have suffered a fracture.

Do consult your doctor as soon as possible. Once the diagnosis is established, further course of treatment can be decided.

I stubbed my smallest toe 9 days ago, iced it pretty quickly and the initial swelling and bruising subsided but cannot wear any shoes,or put any significant weight on the foot.it swells after a days activities(I have to be up and about)and still hurts. I m not totally convinced the toe is broken but good grief, I m ready for this be over. Am I just being impatient and how long does it take to resolve. I m wearing sandals in cold weather! Sorry this seems so benign but it s really incapacitating. By the way, my knee (on the same leg)is now killing me.Im hoping there s no connection. Thanks so much.

About 4 weeks ago, I dropped a 35 Lb weight on my big toe. It sis not break, and I used a buddy splint to help it heal. there is no brusing left, but there is still a little pain when I push off and the swelling is not all the way down. I do not have the ROM I do on the other foot using the same toe. How long before it is back to normal, and should I get it checked?
