Sometimes yes & : Sometimes no. That is why this is not a good gauge to determine if a toe is fractured. A medical evaluation with x-ray can determine if the toe 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?
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
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
I have been told I have a proximal toe fracture in my 4th toe.

what can I use for support?
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 moreSee 2 more doctor answers
What to do after a pinky toe fracture two+ years ago? My moms foot gets swollen and can hardly walk on it. She in pain. Pain relievers not working.
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?
Get it RICED.: It sees that this bruising is either an undiagnosed problem directly related to you toe injury last week or a new injury. If it is a new injury, it has probably developed because your foot is compensating from the broken toe. Either way, maybe you should treat it as a new injury and get it RICED. Rest it, Ice it, apply mild Compression to it, Elevate it and get to a Doctor and end all doubt. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
