That sucks. I've been walking around with a sprained or seemingly sprained ankle and then I was certain my thumb was for a bit but it's finally better lol. Feel better.

I broke it good too! Crutches and a boot for 4-6 weeks

Quoting NiamhWitch: I did that once. Walked funny for about a week.

I'm trying to stay off my foot, but it's not happening

Crutches and a boot for a pinkie toe?  You must have broken more than just the toe!

I broke the proximal phalanx, which is the toe bone closest to the foot. I think the crutches are to prevent me from doing damage to the foot itself

Yeah, that's a bit more than breaking your pinkie toe!  I've done that a couple of times and you just tape it to the toe next to it and move on.  You're lucky you don't need surgery.  My mom did that and needed surgery.

I don't think it's that bad but luckily i used to work for an ortho that specializes is feet and ankles, so i know who to go to!
