I was chasing after my wife's little yorkie terrier today to get him from chasing the cats. So, while barefoot and moving fast, I jammed my small toe into a coffee table leg. Well, the toe started to burn really bad. (after I said a few harsh words) Swelled up like a grape.... I iced it for about an hour and elevated it. Now I have 1/2 moon type bruises at both ends of the 5th proximal phalanx (Former EMT )
Anyway, does this sound like a fracture or a sprain? Being a diabetic, I worry about my feet... Would there be more bruising if it was fractured?
Send your consultation bill to my wife... It was her fruitcake dog I was chasing!
Thanks for your help...
