Fracture big toe-yes: A broken big toe should probably be seen, a lesser toe can be buddy taped. I do think most toe fractures should be x-rayed to see if the alignment of the fracture is good

Elevate and compress: You need to find out the cause of the swelling. Is it varicose veins, cardiovascular disease, arthritis. There are lots of reasons. But to start, elevating the legs is recommended, and no standing in one place too long

Need to be examined: The extent of an ankle sprain is hard to determine. The amount of pain and swelling varies. You need to see a podiatrist or orthopod to determine if the ankle ligaments were seriously damaged, and have the ankle immobilized for a while
