Can A Toe Fracture Cause Nerve Damage To My Toe
A complete nerve transection will leave an area totally numb. The distribution of the numbers depends upon where the nerve was cut. A partial nerve injury may leave the area tingly or incompletely numb. Finally even if the nerve is not cut the swelling and bruising to the tea can affect the nerve as well. Usually we consider sharp penetrating injuries as likely having nerve lacerations when sensation is lost. A hand surgeon can examine the hand and pinpoint the site or extent of nerve injury and recommend ...Read more

Maybe buddy taping: Often, simple toe-fracture does not require casting/high-tech treatment. Supportive care with pain control (motrin/tylenol or something stronger) and simple buddy-taping (wrapping fractured-toe to the one next to it to give support) will do the job. If severe pain, deformed toe (bad fx), u may need additional rx. Consult doc for an eval. Good luck. Read moreSee 4 more doctor answers

Not all fracture respond with simple treatment. If misalignment or continued pain, have an examination. Dr l. Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
I had a toe fracture when I was 11. I'm 27 now and when I walk I am getting pain on my fractured area. Could they be related?
Possibly: Depending on the toe the fracture could have healed in a slightly deformed position causing early arthritis in the joint in the toe. Going to see a doctor to get an x-ray of the foot could possibly show this. If this is truly painful a fusion of the joint may be required to remove this pain. Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing. It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more
