    Default Stubbed toe?

    How long would the pain usually last for a stubbed toe? A month?

    Would it hurt to move it that much for that long of a time?

    Usually when I stub a toe it goes away in a week. Mayhap you broke the nail or fractured the bone? Either way, there isn't much to be done for hurt toes.. If it's not the big toe, I'd try taping it to another toe to keep it steady while it tries to heal.

    Haha, well, it is the big toe...and I hurt it when I fell about three weeks ago to a month.

    I find it very difficult to move it, bend it mostly. I thought it was normal with a stubbed toe (it was slightly bruised and swollen for the first couple of days).

    But for whatever reason, it hurts just as much as it did when I hurt it. Haha, maybe it is fractured? I can still run, walk and other stuff with it.

    Yeah, I would maybe try to fashion a make-shift splint-y thing for it. They make splints for big-toes, but I'd honestly just tape it to another toe and put a small dowel on the other side as much as possible (like maybe while you sleep so it's not in the way during the day). These things take a while to heal sometimes. Did you break the toe nail at all? because I had problems when I broke my toe nail for a LONG time after I did it.. it took nearly a year to heal entirely with a new nail and everything.

    The bruised part was under at least 1/4th of the toenail...now it's reduced to about a very little bit of it. My toenail doesn't seem to be bothering me, the pain is closer to the foot, and recently it's been a bit more swollen there too, most of the pain is at the middle joint of the big toe.

    I smacked my ankle against a wooden box and darned if it didn't make my entire leg hurt like I'd been hit with a hammer!

    Toes, when offended, tend to stay offended for awhile. Do you think you may have jammed it?

    Sounds like it could possibly be broken.

    Haha, I have no idea. I took a pretty nasty fall, as people who witnessed it were surprised I wasn't injured more, let alone not dead.

    I was sort of in shock after I fell, and didn't really notice my toe at all, because my knee was in much more pain at the moment. I only noticed my toe later that night...it looked more swollen, but not really stubbier, than the other one.

    Haha, idk...I think I'm going to ice it more. I have a 6 mile run tomorrow, so hopefully everything will be okay.
