I found out yesterday that I have an oblique fracture of the 4th toe. I am elevating and icing it. How long should I expect this intensity of pain?
Depends on your body. Bone takes approximately 6-8 weeks to heal in the average healthy individual. But as mentioned in other responses, the worst of the pain should subside before then. Rest, ice, proper compression and elevation should all help reduce your pain level. I would recommend speaking to your healthcare provider regarding anti-inflammatory or pain medication if the pain is severe.
