    As a few of you may remember I had a fall a month or so ago which has given me lots of time for hubbing smile. I have been to the hospital for an x-ray on the ankle been to the doctors office and they all agreed that I had a torn ligament in my ankle, of which I have no doubt was torn and is healing. Two of my toes are lookin kinda funny tho, purple sore area on both thats almost like a blister but isn't. I am thinking I will go to the doc again tomorrow but wonder if anyone has had an injury like this?  I am really not sure what is wrong with my toes and wonder if it could be a break or something else? And if something else then what else? *perplexed*

        It's lookin funny enough to make me think I shall go tomorrow, they only do emergency appointments so if I aim to be there first thing I can be one of the first seen. They do 2 blocks of appointments and will not scedule outside of the block they are currently in, insane aint it?

      if you'll google raccoon toes...

      on a more serious note, if swelling is evident then elevate it and ice it 'til you see the doc.
      hopefully they're not broken

    Discolored toes are really going to be from two sorts of causes:  circulation (really a lack thereof) or bruising.

    With circulation, problems stem from blood flow to the toes having problems, and the discoloration is a sign of toe tissue being starved for nutrients or worse.  There are a wide variety of reasons, all of which only a doctor can determine if they are happening or not.

    With bruising, there is or was some form of internal bleeding and the discoloration is from blood that has pooled in the area where you see the colors.  Again, multiple reason can cause this but really only a doctor could tell you what's going on.

    Either way, foot problems are nothing to ignore and I'm glad you're going to see the doc.  I've had a crushed nerve in a toe that left me with partial numbness for several months once, and a mild break or severe sprain that was mid-foot and resulted in me wearing the one pair of shoes that didn't hurt my foot for months while it healed.

    If you had a broken toe you would know it!  I had the same type injury that you had when I stepped on a rock and instead of my foot going inward it went outward and tore the ligaments in my achilles tendon.  I was in a half cast for 6 weeks for that.  Not fun eh?  I don't remember what my toes looked like and I would go see your doctor about them.  It sounds as if they are just bruised but better be safe then sorry.

    If you broke you toe it would hust like a brusie but longer then a couple of days.  I slammed mine into a bag of potatoes once and broke my baby toe and how I knew it.. the toe was sticking out sideways from my foot.  There is nothing they can do but wrap two toes together.

    I have a broken little toe,It has been broken for 40 years and has a hump on the side.
    Every time I buy shoes the toe will wear a hole in the side of my shoe.
    Be sure to get the toes fixed or you will have the same problem.
    Also my toe gets sore at the hump part sometimes and it doesn't feel good.
    I have waited to long to get the thing fixed and now the only solution is operating on it..
