Back in June I tripped over the only toy laying on the floor at work (a daycare) as I had just lifted a 25 pound 16 month old to put him at the table. We both went down. He was alright but I had stubbed my toe on the toy & had rug burn & bruising on the hand I used to catch us & one of my knees. I never went to get anything checked out because I thought I would heal just fine.
Fast forward to October- the company I worked for got bought out by a larger corporation & I lose my PA for medical (they downgraded me to Family Planning Services only because I make too much for PA insurance) & I can't get on company insurance yet (that is going to cost me $130 a month & it wouldn't kick in til Feb 2013).
My foot is killing me. Actually it's really only my big toe, right where it meets the foot (see pic).

IDK what to do. I bought new tennis shoes & that really makes it hurt. But I only wear the shoes to & from work & on weekends. I tried ibprofin for the pain. I've soaked the foot in a warm bath. I have tried having one of my DDs pull on it to see if it will pop. I have even had her massage my foot where it hurts. NOTHING works. I know I should have gone to the doc when it happened but like I said- I didn't think it would get this bad. Even just relaxing around the house hurts.
Any suggestions that I haven't tried? I was going to go to the doctor last week for a routine check up & address it then but I had to cancel that appointment because of getting cut off medical PA.
