Broken?

How can you tell the difference between a broken toe and a very badly sprained one? I can walk on it, but not without pain and difficulty.

  • Can you bend it? Most of the time if you can bend what you think is broken then it isnt broken.

  • I'd try the bending to determine broken or sprained. OUCH Hope its the less painful of the two.
