Just under 2 weeks ago I decided to teach my car a lesson for the rear hatch crashing down on my head by kicking the bumper. Smart, I know. The pain in my big toe was extremely intense at the moment it happened, I thought initially that I might have broken it, it lightly bruised up almost immediately (in fact my whole foot turned red for a short while) and had some swelling. I couldn't walk great that evening. By the next morning, the pain while walking wasn't too bad. I had an 8 hour drive home and definitely for a while I could feel the tightness of my shoe due to the swelling there, but that seemed to ease up a bit by the end of the drive. After that I could pretty much walk fine on it. Going down the stairs I could feel it a hair but not bad and shortly after that I felt pretty good in most normal activity. My toe definitely can't bend as much as my other big toes can (though it does loosen up a bit the more I try to bend it I think) and that is a painful motion to 'clench' my toes into a 'fist' as well as having the toe lifted up to it's full extent. There is a hardish 'bump' on the outside of the toe I think just in front of the joint by the nail with some slight swelling, and that joint is still painful to pressure on the top of it. I imagine it's just a strain right? Otherwise it'd be more painful to walk on I think. It's not a huge deal since it doesn't affect 'regular life' much, but it'd be nice to have a time frame to look forward too haha.
