    Hello people,

    Today a few hours ago i went on my trampoline for a jump and that, enjoy the sunny weather, and i did a knee drop and my toes bent proper forward (not backwards) i applied ice pack and put bandage on, im going in the bath soon but at this time my big toe is really hurting me. Ive checked my big toe which hurts and compared it to my left big toe (if that makes sence?) and the right toe (hurting toe) feels different from the ok toe. Do you guys think ive broken it or not? it's worrying me as i got a football game in 2 days and im going to A&E tomorrow if it any worse tomorrow,

    Help appreciated,
    Thanks,
    Jake

    I may or may not have broken my big toe when I stubbed it against a wooden hut in Madagascar.
    It was purple, blotchy and VERY painful for a week

    8 months later, and now it looks just like my other big toe, 'cept for the way it clicks when I bend it forward.
    I don't care any more and neither should you.
    All A&E will tell you is not to use it for a couple of weeks and possibly bandage it, although, if it gets noticeably worse tomorrow, go and see your GP as a matter of priority.

    I can say with certainty that you won't be able to play in that next match, but you'll get your game back on in a couple of weeks.

    You'll have to wait until it recovers to feel the movement - but from the sounds of it you've probably broken it

    Toes are easily broken and nothing can be done - not sure a trip to A&E is worth it- it'll settle down you won't notice it after a couple of months.

    I broke mine in similar circumstances - I can't bend it back now compared to the other toe - but its not really the end of the world - it used to throb in the morning and when cold but that stopped after a while.

    Nothing can be done about it...they'll x-ray it tell you "yep its broken" strap it to the other toes and give you some tablets.

    Well if it is broken you shouldnt be able to move it. Also I dont think it should hurt a lot.
    However a trip to A&E wouldnt do any harm
    Take painkillers if it really hurts especially during the night since you need to sleep
