How to treat a sprained toe?

I woke up this morning with pain in the big toe of my left foot. I didn t have any pain when I went to bed. I began wearing new shoes two days ago. It didn t hurt until I got out of bed this morning and began walking. There is no swelling or redness. It doesn t hurt much if I take my shoe off and curl my toes. It almost feels like a strain.

I suffered an ankle sprain 3 weeks ago and its still painful and swollen and my toes tend to go numb. My doctor called with the results from my MRI and said nothing was torn and I just had a severe sprain. She suggested placing me in a cast. What does this mean?

I sprained my ankle a week ago Wednesday and the bruising has moved to my toes. I am still very uncomfortable. Is this normal? I did elevate and iced it initially. I have been wearing a brace constantly. It aches constantly. Is this the way it’s going to be for awhile?

My 24 year old son sprained his ankle on the 4th of July. He said he heard it pop . We have been treating with ice, ibuprofen, Tylenol. He can put weight on it and walk on it and the swelling and bruising has gone down some but he is complaining of numbness in his toes. Should he see a physician or is this pretty typical for this type of injury.
