Yes: Yes, but it may depend how serious a fracture and swelling there is. People have been known to walk on ankle fractures, so just because you can walk on it, does not exclude fracture diagnosis. Hope that helps. ...Read more
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. As long as it is only in the toe and not in the foot, you can support it by wearing stiff soled shoes and taping it to the next toe. ...Read more
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?
See doc, get X-ray: What you know is that your injured your pinky toe, but until you get an xray, you don't know if your broke the toe or any other part of the foot. This can include the long bone behind the pinky toe. You need to get your foot examined, see a foot and ankle specialist. The sooner you get it checked the quicker you can be treated and get back to full mobility. ...Read more

Bone can take: 6-8 weeks to heal doesn't mean it will hurt you that long. You may have reinjured it with knocking it again...Or possibly not. Ice it and elevate it. Surgical shoe is recommended while walking. ...Read more

Not a good idea...: It sounds to me like you will just keep re-injuring it if you don't give it a chance to heal properly. The only thing to do is give it time - probably four weeks at least. ...Read more
My fifth toe is swollen & red & I cant bend it down or walk on it cause of an injury but x ray doesn't show fracture so what's the problem?

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. When a bone breaks blood to the bone increases, increasing the pressure. When you hang it down, the pressure increases more. That increases pain. Elevate it. The taping may be slowing the blood out of toe increasing pain. Adjust it. Use fx shoe, crutch. ...Read more
I had fifth toe fracture last week. Yesterday I noted a large bruise in the centre of foot extremely painful and is not letting me hang my foot/walk?
You hit your toe against something hard enough to break it. My guess is, you hit the rest of the foot hard also, but didn't notice it because the toe hurt so much. Now it's badly bruised.

Diagnosis?: It depends what is causing the pain. Is it a corn on the inside or outside of the toe? If so a toe pad or toe separator may help. Make sure you wear shoes that do not squeeze the toes. ...Read more
