Pain Toe Knuckle
There is a sharp pain in my toe knuckles. It feels like I have to crack them, but when I do the pain doesn't go away. What could it be?
I fell down some steps couple months back. Now I have pain on my right toe knuckle when bent. Why?
To my knowledge No -: cause has yet been established for it. It also does not result in any longterm ill effects. However having said that, if someone has it in joint, which has been ijnured in the past then it would be better to have that checked out by your orthopd with an xrays to see if there is a loose body or some other cause for it. Good Luck. ...Read more
My brother fell at a friends house, and he thinks he chipped his toe knuckle, how do we confirm this?
Chips Ahoy...: I would expect that the toe would be swollen, possibly bruised and somewhat painful. All of these symptoms would be good initial indicators. However, the only effective way to tell is to have the toe x-rayed. In the meantime, applying ice to the area will help with the swelling and pain. Elevation might also have some benefit. Using the x-ray as a guide, the chip may be able to be re-positioned. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I hit my bby toe last yr, it swelled, turned black&pained. It has grown back rotated & the "knuckle" is big. Should i see a dr?
Yes: It sounds like a bedroom fracture. The small toe is often broken rounding the bed on the way to the bathroom at night. If the toe is deformed, a corn will likely form at some point. You may wish to see a podiatrist for evaluation and x-rays. Surgical repair may be indicated. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
