My toe is purple, has a big lump & will NOT bend - is it broken? Professional help please!!!?
I hurt the ball of my left foot 3 wks ago so I've been limpin around to keep the weight off of it. Last week, I slipped on the ice after my foot doctor appointment, with my bum foot (because limping is hard to do on ice!!) & I now noticed the toe next to my pinky is purple/red, swollen, & there is a large hard lump on the left side of it. It will NOT bend and when I move it around I get instant tears, however I can still walk and limp around. I see the Doc again on Fri, until then- is it broken? What should I do? Help!!
Additional Details
I wanted to add, that I DO have an appt, which I made today. The EARLISEST they can get me in, is on Friday AM and the doctor was not available to talk today..... GRR
However I did explain the swelling, pain and colors. No sympathy from receptionist.........now what?

Sounds broken go to the doctor now

If you are seeking professional help, I would say go to the doctor. If you want a bunch of yahoo's answers I would have to say you should go to the doctor.

Go to a doctor NOW

I would say............................ go to the doctor fast ASAP right away no questions asked see the doc an apple a day dose not usual keep the doctor away see a doctor

Elevate the leg, try to stay off the foot as much as possible. You sound as if you have broken the toe, your doctor or a good podiatrist/ orthopedic doctor would be able to tell you more. For swelling, use a ice wrapped in a slightly damp washcloth, which you then put in a sandwich baggie. Put it under the ball of the foot while the foot is elevated on pillows or fold up an old blanket, anything to get the foot up. This will help take the swelling down. Use Tylenol if it works for you, if not good old Aspirin for pain and swelling. Go to the doc as soon as you are able. Good luck!

It definately is broken. For the time being you should stay off your foot as much as possible tape the injured toe to your healthy toe next to it and keep it elevated. Also keep putting ice on it.

Have you performed Xray of foot, might be because of muscle sprain involving 5 th metatarsal of foot. Xray Feet AP & Lat views will help you out, meanwhile carry out the advise of your doctor.

Sure sounds like it, you better get it looked at , it could get infected, you dont want to have to worry about losing a oe or anything!

It's very possible it's broken. However, I recently broke my pinky toe and was told that there was nothing they could do about it--it just had to heal on its own. It has been 2 1/2 weeks and it's still hurting once in a while. You can go see your doctor, but unless it's your foot itself (not a toe) that's broken, they probably won't do anything but give you some ibuprofin and send you on your way.

yea it sounds broken tape it to the next toe till it feels better when i broke my toe i walked into a desk chair they arre real fragile so be more carful next time

If you can get a sooner appointment, do so. When you call, tell the receptionist that its extremely painful, turning colors, and you really want to be seen ASAP. Maybe you can get an appt. with a different doctor.
If you can't wait, go to urgent care or ER.
It sounds broken, just keep it imobilized until someone can XRay it.

WebMD ususally has good answers to health/injury questions. You could look it up there.

It could very well be broken or dislocated. Sounds like you need an xray! Call the foot doc to work you in earlier or hop on in to your local urgent care clinic.

You most likely broke your toe. If you can deal with the pain wait till friday if not call your doc and see if they can see you sooner. They will most likely have you take an x-ray but I don't think they do much for a broken toe. Sorry about your toe!

Go to the doctor now!
