    Hello I feel really stupid for writing a thread about my little toe but it is so painful that I just have to.

    I stubbed my little toe really hard on a wooden table leg and it hurt like the devil for a while, as they always do. I took my sock off and felt it, it felt okay, no bleeding or anything, eventually pain went down to a manageable level. Then a few minutes later when I was walking (rather, limping) I felt a sudden sharp pain in my little toe and now I can't lift my foot or toes past their normal angle without unbearable pain. It feels like something is pulling my little toe downwards if that makes sense. I am scared to move my foot very much at all because the pain is so acute - it makes me gasp.

    Does anyone know what might be wrong? And is there anything I should be doing about this or is it just a case of manning up until it feels better?

    Thanks

    You might have damaged the tendon. Keep a bandage around it

    Please do not man up and just leave it as it is, it sound like you have damaged something a nerve perhaps. Get to the doctors and check it out.

    Put it in warm water and let it soak. See if you can move it in the morning, if not go to the hospital.

    Toes assist the human while walking, providing balance, weight-bearing, and thrust during the gait.

    Try and move your toe with your fingers up and down. If you can do that through a decent angle without unbearable pain, there shouldn't be a problem. If the pain is localised at a certain angle, then just try and keep the toe flat, couple days you should be fine. If it gets to unusual levels of pain then just go see a doctor.
