Yesterday I dropped a heavy bowl on the joint at the base of my big toe. I think I probably fractured something, but can anything even be done for a fracture at that joint? I know "buddy taping" it won't do much since it is at the joint where my toes bend to walk. I feel like an idiot --- no, I am an idiot for trying to carry too many things at once. It is swollen and bruised, but at least the bowl didn't cut me when it hit. I must admit, though, that the bowl contained BBQ sauce and I panicked thinking it cut my toe off! OK, go ahead and laugh at me! I'm laughing too. If anyone has any idea of what I can do to stabilize that joint or if anything can even be done if I go to the doctor, I'd appreciate your input.
