Broken toe advice
Misshapen and numb doesn’t sound good to me. Compromised nerve or blood flow following a fracture (even a toe) is not something to ignore. Whilst a toe seems trivial and not worth wasting time for I still suffer years later from nock on effects of a toe problem 6 or 7 years on (which was seen at the time, but there was a collective decision to avoid surgery to fix).Posted 5 years agopolyMember
Minor injuries/Walk in centre for you.
Dr Death – if it needs fixing (rather than some micropore and a dose of MTFU) will a normal Minor Injuries Clinic be able to deal with it? I know that when I did mine the x-rayed it then referred me up to the ‘proper A&E’ because it was in so many pieces.Posted 5 years agorestlessMember
I fell down the stairs and snapped my little toe back once. It got stuck in the bottom of my jeans.
It was very painful but when i saw a nurse she said there was nothing that could be done, it was strapped to the toe next door and that was that.
It did make it quite painful to drive for a while too.Posted 5 years agoron jeremyMember
Evening all, I slipped on the stairs this morning (er yes it was a good night last night) and I’ve just got in taken sock shoe off and my toe is bent and very red/bruised, swollen, now I don’t fancy wasting hours at A&E so what can I do tonight to just make it easier, just feels numb at present to be honest…….
Thanks all in advancePosted 5 years agobommerMember
If it’s your big toe, get to A+E/walk(heh) in centre. Broke my big toe and was in plaster upto my knee for 4 weeks, as it is important for balance and walking and stuff. Other toe, tape it to the bigger one next to it and prepare to hurt for a week or two. Ibuprofen helps, but see the doc if starts going cold or funny colours that’s not bruisingPosted 5 years ago
