I've broke the same toe three times!! The first two times it was during sex (two separate occasions, lol) and the third time I was in a hurry and had to change clothes so I was trying to take off my pants while running (stupid I know) and I kicked something and my toe went under my foot and I stepped on it. After the first time I had my dh go out and buy some gauze and wrapped it up until I got to the Dr. The Dr. took an x-ray said "yep it's broken" wrapped it up in new bandage that looked like what I had wrapped it up in and sent me on my way. The other two times I saved myself the trip to the Dr. and just wrapped it up myself. There really isn't anything they can do for a broken toe unless it's severely broken like sticking out sideways. Ice it for about 20 minutes a few times a day and ibuprofen is good for inflammation and pain

Thanks ladies you made me LOL. I didn't think they could do anything for a broken toe. Monday night I was rushing upstairs and took a step that was too big and slammed my foot up against unfinished drywall sticking out. It was so loud my husband came running to see if I was OK with the baby. I swear that pain was worse than child birth. My middle toe is now swollen, black and blue with a small blood blister. It's pretty gross. Does it take about 6-8 weeks to heal?
