I hug my toe off the edge of the couch yesterday and the left side and the right side is now bruised is it broken have a race in 24 days will it be ok?
Caution: Sorry. Not able to tell you if your toe is fractured from your brief description. Not certain from what you describe what exactly the mechanism of injury was.

A girl fell directly on my nose. It bled for awhile, but stopped. It's not too swollen, and there is a tiny bruise. Is it broken? When will pain stop?
Need x-ray to tell: if broken or not, but if clinically your nose looks straight, you are able to breathe comfortably though each nostril, and are able to move the soft, fleshy part of your nose without significant increase in pain, then most likely it is not broken. A non-displaced fracture of the nasal bones will heal fine without treatment as long as there is not a new injury. Pain will last several days. ...Read more
