Broken Pinky Toe
Pain, swelling: And bruising after some type of "whacking" to the toe. If it hurts to press on it and to bend it also, it probably is broken.

Broken pinky toe and can't walk on it.. At all. And IV read that most people walk with their broken toes, just with a limp.. Is this bad, or normal?

I had a displaced fifth toe fracture 3 days ago reduced with buddy taping. I cant hang my foot down, results in severe pain. How should i walk?
Not my buddy: Since you mention displaced fracture and buddy taping, it sounds like it has already been examined, x-rayed and splinted by a pro. If not, do it.
