I think I may have broken my 4th toe on my right foot a few days ago. My toe is still a little purple/and in pain, but not as much as when it first happened of course. I can move the toe, and when I touch it, it doesn't "feel" broken. I haven't taped it or anything, just been walking carefully on it, in flip flops because that's most comfortable to me.
My boyfriend is telling me to make a doctor's appointment & get it x-rayed. I'm stubborn, because right now, although I have health insurance, it's my own because I'm not a full employee where I'm working right now, I'm on contract work. So, I have to pay a good portion of the X-rays and I just really don't want to go & take time off work, pay the X-ray bill, etc. What's the doctor going to do, tape it? I can do that myself, there's so many instructions online!
Advice? Anyone else break their 4th toe?
