Broken toe: Usually there is pain swelling bruising , inability to move the toe - but not always - sometimes numbness due to the trauma and swelling. See your podiatrist if you suspect this. The old adage " there's nothing to do " is really wrong.
Dr. Jeffrey Kass

Pain, swelling: Are the main ones but neither has to occur to have a broken toe. An xray would help determine.

Next biggest toe: A broken toe, assuming it is not a complicated fracture and not the big toe, is usually treated by taping the affected toe to the next bigger toe. Caution should be used to not tape the toes too tightly together. Best to consult with your doctor to confirm the diagnosis.

Depends: Big toe fractures generally require more restrictions whereas simple fractures of the lesser toes can be treated with simple buddy taping to the adjacent toe. Some fractures of the big and lesser toes may require setting, surgery and/or prolonged immobilization based on the complexity of the fracture. Xray will define the fracture pattern and dictate the treatment. Get xrays and see your doc.
