TOE.......................

Yesterday I slipped and hurt my toe.
Its swollen, very swollen, blue and a funny yellow colour. I can kind of move it but its EINA.

Is my toe broken,sprained or am I just being a big old baby?

Hallo Nadene
This sounds very painful! It could be broken - maybe you should rather have it x/rayed. In the mean time, bind it to the healthy toe next to it (not too tight) and put ice on, keep the foot elevated, and try taking an anti-inflammatory medication like Neurofen if you are not allergic to it.
