A 27-year-old female asked:

Currently healing from confirmed big toe avulsion fracture. i can bend the toe, but there's an odd snapping feeling on the side where the fracture is. is that the tendon that pulled away from the bone? what could that be? it feels odd.

Depends: It could be the fracture fragment shifting or soft tissue impingement. See your local podiatrist for evaluation
