What is moderate pain and swelling in the joint of my big toe where it joins my foot. I'm 43 and very physically active.?

I stubbed my big toe on a door. I have rings of dark bruising around the joints, light bruising across the top of my foot, and mild swelling. Broken?

If it is very swollen and bruised and if it is painful to touch over any part of the bone then you may want to get an xray. If you do not get one right away and it is getting better then it is probably not broken. If the pain gets worse or is not going away, then xray is needed. ...Read more
