July is 'damage your body below the waist' month.

Previous Entry Share Next Entry
LAST July, I managed, in the span of one week, to throw my left knee out of whack and sprain both ankles.
THIS July (just last night), I stubbed my little toe on my right foot so hard I can't put weight on the damn thing (which is making an interesting hobble out of my walk).

July is 'fuck up your legs and feet' month, yeah. Grr.

    If you haven't, go see a doctor. Your little toe might be fractured.

      I should edit: I can put weight on it, it's just slightly uncomfortable. I have to sleep on the opposite side; it's not comfy to put weight against in bed.
      Without moving it, it's not that uncomfortable at all. It's bruised up pretty thoroughly, though. I really don't think it's broken: I can wiggle the toe and not want to shriek at the top of my lungs.

        I thought that one could break a toe (especially the little one) and have symptoms like that. I would give my GP a ring in the morning if that happened to me.

          sat down with toe last night. Toe hurt when pressure was applied to it- but did not hurt when it was flexed around (extended outwards from the foot, raised, lowered, &c). Today, in shoes, it is not thrilled with me at the first joint of the toe. Hrmn. I think it's OK, honestly.
