Swollen painful toe after being hit. Need medical attention?

I struck my baby toe on my couch last night! Now the side of my foot is swollen and when i touch the bone in my foot where it joins to my toe a pain goes up the side of my foot and shoots through the bottom of my foot and it hurts to walk on it! I was wondering what would cause the pain and swelling and if i should get doctor to look at it?

Thanks for writing in.

you had injury to your baby toe and after that it was swollen & tender to touch .

It might me soft tissue injury or fracture.

You need an x-ray to rule out any fracture.

you have to visit a orthopaedic surgeon for examination of foot & treatment plan according to that.

Hope I have answered your query.
