I was just walking across the room to open the curtain and my right foot kicked the couch end. I broke my middle toe. I just taped the toe and the toe next to it together. It will take about 4 to 5 weeks to heal. The toe may still have some swelling and pain, but you are on your way.

I took a square metal dresser leg between my big toe and the second toe. I was in a hotel room in the middle of the night. That was in May, this is October. I still can’t sleep. The pain keeps me sick at my stomach. I am going to lose the toe nail. No sleep in months, yea.

I was going up the stairs I missed a step and stubbed the fourth toe on my left foot. After it started turning purple, I figured I broke it. I’m still waiting on X-ray results. During the day it barely bothers me, but at night I get excruciating pain that wakes me up.

I broke my second toe about 2 weeks ago. It still hurts a lot and now I have swelling on the top of that foot. I did tape the two toes together and am taking ibuprofen. I have an infant so I know I probably didn't keep it raised as long as I should have. But I don't really want to go to the general physician if it’s not really needed.
