1 Bump

I dropped a 2 liter bottle on my toe...

And it bruised and swelled up instantly. Isn't that a bad sign? I'm getting tested for Lupus so I didn't know if that was one of the symptoms or not.

  • I can't give you an accurate medical answer. But, I can say that if I dropped a 2 litre bottle of soda on my toe, it would bruise and swell right away! LOL.

  • Could be lupus. Is it the same pain you get in your other joints or is it different? I don't think its the lupus but I don't know... Sounds like it could be broken. I have not heard of severe swelling from lupus..

  • It could be broken, but if it is all they'll do is tape it, maybe give you an air-shoe if you're really in that much pain. I broke 4/5 toes once at the same time, they just taped them, wrapped my foot and told me to wear a slipper. If you're in a lot of pain tape it to the next toe, elevate it, ice it, and wear a shoe that's not going to put pressure on it, like a slipper. Hope you feel better :)

  • I dropped a half full bottle of e&J brandy on my foot when I was younger and my toe did the same thing. It also was like that for a little over a week before it went down, it hurt for about 6-8weeks after. couldnt get a cast for a toe so I had to just deal. Dont know what lupus is like, but do know what dropping something on a toe is like

  • Ow!!! I don't know if Lupus has anything to do with it but hope it gets better.

  • Thank you for advising, ready4vbaby2011. Wow, more and more things that I keep getting that keep pointing to Lupus keeps making me more nervous.

  • I would think the bottle did it, but I'd be worried if I had other symptoms also in reference to Lupus. Feel Better !!
