Continue same.: I am assuming you don't have pain while you walk, because you need xrays to rule out a fracture. If not so then continue ice and use elastic bandage to continue to wrap it constantly. Keep your leg elevated when sitting or lying. Rest is important by avoiding to walk or use crutches. Please see a doctor if not better in 7 - 10 days. ...Read more

My pinky toe feels like it has a string or piece of hair wrapped around it but there's nothing there. Any clue what's causing this sensation?

First make sure: There is none. Hair or string wrapped around a toe does happen and can lead to auto amputation of the digit. This is known as ainhum.

Unlikely: It is unlikely that you have a hair in your throat that long. You might have a globus phenomenon, a feeling that something is stuck in your throat, caused by allergy drainage or acid reflux. You should probably see an ENT specialist if this continues for a thorough exam and advice. ...Read more
