    I have broken a toe twice and didn't know until I had the toe x-rayed each time. Takes about six weeks to heal properly if you stay off it.

    Did you check out the underside of your toe when you stubbed it? That's where most of my bruising was both times.

    If it's bruised and swollen and painful for weeks, it may be fractured. You could get an xray if you wanted, but I think they don't do much/anything if it's minor.

    I think I broke a toe once by stubbing it sideways (baby toe) but didn't bother to get it xrayed. It throbbed for about 2-3 months and was bruised/swollen all over for at least a month. I might have taped it to the next toe, don't think so though. Some people might react differently though, or have different severities of fracture. Get it checked out if you're worried, but it's probably not a big deal either way.

    edit: I should add that I got my big toe checked out once after injuring it in soccer, it was very swollen/bruised/throbbing and I went to see the doctor after about 2 weeks of it not going away. He basically looked at it for 3 seconds and laughed at me for coming in. :ouch:

    Yeah.. I fractured/broke my pinky toe a few years ago. I knew it was way beyond a 'stub' the minute it happened, due to the level of pain and the fact that it didn't subside within a matter of minutes. Well, that, and it very quickly swelled up and was discolored for a couple of weeks.

    As Violaine said, it takes a solid 6 weeks or so to heal. I know for me it was at least 6 weeks before I was able to start walking normally without having pain shoot through my toe. Once I was able to start walking normally, though, it was still somewhat tender for another couple of months. Not painful, it's just if I walked too much it would start feeling a little sore.

    I ended up not getting it x-rayed because I didn't really see a point in it since I knew with broken toes, they didn't really put a cast or anything on, as it heals on its own. And the pain makes it so you pretty much keep off of it and don't put weight on it. Mine healed fine. A couple of times I tried taping it to the toe beside it, thinking that might help, but honestly I don't think the tape did anything and it felt better without it.

    A broken toe will stop hurting after 2-3 months.

    Well, it's broken now.

    Walls are funny like that, how they get in the way sometimes.

    It's usually doorways for me. Especially sliding doors.
