A week ago I ran out of the bathroom & my last 2 toes got stuck in the door frame & I fell forward out through the door. Immediately my foot swelled & bruised. I have quite a high pain threshold so have just thought I'd bruised it & put up with it. It seems to be getting worse. I'm not sure whether to bother the Dr. It feels like it's the ligament. I don't think I've broken the toe but I do suffer from osteoporosis. If I have a fracture then I am eligible for reduced prescriptions for meds but I can't take the meds due to bad side effects. I don't know if I should just give it time but if it is fractured I don't think they can do anything anyway. I could try for a 5 min appt in the morning but it doesn't look as bad as it was but just hurts more when walking.
Thanks. I went to the Drs today & got x rayed. It is fractured. It actually hurts really badly today. The nurse has just strapped the toes together but it really hurts when I walk. I am sitting with an ice pack on it.
It's a little better but hurts in shoes. The strapping is bulky & squashed my toe. At home I walk in bare foot but I have caught my toe a few times & it hurts through the padding but it feels like it's improving.
