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.

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?

I was going up the stairs until I fell. I somehow hurt two of my toes. They hurt so much that I was unable to move it back or forth, until I put BENGAY PAIN RELIEVING CREAM , multiple bandages, (to keep it straight it s NOT bleeding) and a cold wet napkin on my toes. After I did this I simply rested in bed. Now (1/2 an hour later) it still hurts and I CAN move it forward but NOT back without it paining yet. I still CANT walk with pressure on those toes. My toes currently arent brused nor swelled. What I want to know is are my toes just sprained or did I break/fracture a bone? Also I need an estimate of how long it s going to stay like this? With gratitude, Kushina
