Symptoms of a broken toe
Ever dropped anything on your foot and hopped around in pain, telling anyone who’ll listen “It’s broken!”? Well now, you can check if it really is.
You can be in a lot of pain just from a bruised foot or toe, but if it is broken:
- You may not be able to move the toe
- The toe will be bruised and swollen
- You may be able to see the broken bone poking through the skin
- The toe may be very stiff
- It might look deformed or bent the wrong way
- You’ll probably feel really nauseous or dizzy.
If it’s your big toe, you may not be able to walk on it. Also, breaking your big toe is more serious than a smaller one, and it might need medical attention. A doctor can splint a broken big toe or put it back into place, but sometimes there’s nothing that they can do with any of the others. They will heal on their own.
If it is not broken but painful, try and rest it, prop it on some cushions and apply ice (wrapped in a towel) to get the swelling down. If you’re not sure if it’s broken or not, go to the hospital where they will help you.
