    I have a habit of bending my toes by using my other foot to do it, mostly when I'm sleepy and trying to stay awake. Anyway, one night about 6 weeks ago, I was watching tv, and getting sleepy, when my middle toe started itching. I thought I'd been bitten by something. The next few weeks, my DH and I watched it swell and start hurting. Yesterday, I went to a podiatrist, and I had fractured it! The dr. said that sometimes all it takes is bending your toe, and the ligament will catch hold of the bone just right, and the bone fractures. Don't think I'm gonna do much bending of the toes anymore! The only way to get the swelling down now is to wrap it in the self-adhesive tape, but not enough to cut off circulation. I guess I just wanted to warn you not to be as dumb as me!

    Hah... I did this just going down the stairs, missing one step! I never knew my toe was that fragile but BOY HOWDY I learned...ouch!

    Silver lining here is it's summer and bare feet are not impossible to do, right?

    I thought I had broke my toe back in Feb. Went 3 weeks, finally went to foot dr. Not only did I break it, I shattered it. He wrapped it to the next toe and 9 weeks later, it showed healing. Said it would take about 9 mon to heal completely. Of course he had to remind me I wasn't 16 any longer. LOL I accidently ran into a door. Sure made me remember to turn on a light next time.
