Is it normal not to see a doctor about a broken toe?

My toe is really fucked up. First I kicked in a wall, causing the initial injury. I tried to ignore it but then today I lost my footing and landed on my knee, head, and fucked up toe. It was about a five foot drop. Now whenever I touch it there's a sharp pain. But for some reason I feel like it's not that important because it's just a toe.

  • Which toe? Unless it's your big toe there is nothing you can do about a break. If it is your big toe then go and see the doctor, that will fuck you up more than you think. You can't even walk properly without a properly functioning big toe and it will mess up your knees, hips and back.

  • About 6 years ago I landed on the outside part of my foot. Two weeks ago I sprained my ankle badly. I went for an X-ray. Turns out 6 years ago I chipped the bone. It healed and I have minimal issues with it. The doctor doesn’t do much for small injuries. I’d put it in a splint and ice it for a few days and maybe call your PCP but it’s not too serious of an issue.

  • Unless it's visibly disfigured I would just leave it

  • Well, do not take any risk from internal injury, consult to the doctor for complete treatment, is you feel pain that’s mean there are chances of internal injury or muscle damage.

  • Yeah it's a toe, but think about what its connected to... your foot and if a ligament is fucked up you might want to get it fixed. Also it probably sucks to walk no? All the more reason to take a morning in urgent care to fix it.

  • Just put a tiny piece of straight wood and attach it with tape. Rest for a few days and that's it!

  • If the pain lasts more than a day or two without signs of healing, go to the god damn doctor. It might just be "nothing" but only a qualified medical pro can know for sure.

  • Not broken. Rest it, be careful on it, it will heal

  • Inject heroin and forget about the pain.

  • Is it crooked, or a compound fracture?

    I think I fractured one of my little piggies about fifteen years ago. It was the one that cried, "wee", all the way home, but I don't remember if it was the left, or right side.
