is my toe fractured?

Posted by Lynn on 3/25/02 at 11:05 (077492)

2 months ago, I wore a pair of boots, 1/2' heel. They were the correct size, which is an 8W. I felt like my toes on my left foot were squeezed together tighter than the others. Since then, I have had major toe pain on the middle toe and in the middle of the ball of my foot, and it looks like it's deformed slightly where the toe and foot meet. The only shoes that I can wear comfortably right now are a pair of clogs that tip my weight onto my heels. I work in an office and usually wear 1 1/2 inch pumps. these are ok for about 4 hours, then I have to switch to the clogs for the day, slippers when I get home.
Could I have caused a slight fracture, pulled a mucsle or pinched a nerve?
thanks for your help.

I am not a doctor but highly recommend you get to a Podiatrist for an xray ASAP.

This sounds like a pinch nerve
