Heavy solid wood on a non slip surface. Leg right between my toes.
Hurts to walk on, driving fine in clogs but shoes, nope. Doesn't hurt hardly at all when resting. Just arrived at a 4 day workshop for my new job (vital to attend in order to commence employment which we are financially depending on)
So hotel is middle of nowhere, icy dangerous back roads to get here. I'm going to look a right twit tomorrow when everyone suited and booted and I'm hobbling I'm in a pair of fluffy socks.
Anyway, do I need A&E or a doc? They're toes, they can't do much anyway can they? I have plasters here I'm going to bind them together.
No it's not. Ugh, I've done this before years ago with the same foot. We've got a move across country and expenses already paid out for for my job start date, rental property sorted, our house SSTC and the final hurdle is this workshop then it all comes together.
Just what you dont need right now maybe the course will be cancelled tomorrow if the roads are too bad so you'd best call them in the morning. Have you got a decent pair of flats or trainers you can wear or will you wear your clogs. I'd get it xrayed, if it's broken don't they just strap it to the next one and give you some decent painkillers,
Thanks all I feel better in that I'm not taking up valuable A&E time when there's really not a lot they can do. I have strapped not sure it's right but it looks straight. No painkillers as it's not that bad but I will in the morning as I'll be on it a lot.
I did the exact same toe by dropping a fence panel on it at Christmas. Ice, rest and anti-inflammatories. Didn't bother with A&E as they won't do anything for it anyway. Took a couple of weeks before I could get a shoe on (flip flops in the snow is a good look!) and it still aches now if I walk too far or it gets really cold.
Do not ‘be on a lot’ tomorrow. Whether it’s broken or not you’ve done loads of soft tissue damage and that needs time to heal. Put it up a lot, and ice it every so often, and get people to,fetch and carry for you. Showing your new colleagues your fabulous bruises will be a great icebreaker.
