this little piggy fucking hurts.

I think I broke my toe.

I'm not sure - I don't want to go to the doctor to say "i think i broke my toe" for them to say "yup, you probably broke your toe, not much we can do" ...

but this is rather uncomfortable.

Awww you dunnn need no steeekin MD to tell you what to do.....
Broken toes~ I know a bit 'bout this
Broken toes will swell, turn colors, if not solely red, and feel hot
They also will ache with the slightest pressure on them : walking, putting on a shoe, getting caught in the bedcovers

There is not really anything a doctor can do for a broken toe unless it is the big toe.

If you can, apply ice to it **gently** I usually do it this way: add crushed (not cubed) ice in a zip lock bag with cold water so the bag is less rigid and more flexible.

Once the swelling goes down, use your med skills and decide if you can tape it to the ajoining toe for some support.

Hope this helps

Thanks! I'll try icing it tonight. I can't tape it because there is a cut, and i want to keep it open so it doesn't turn into one of those non-healing infected diabetic wounds.
