Well...I didn't break it per se...my cat was begging for my delicious Captain Crunch (which is gluten free and yummy) and he lost his balance on the coffee table in front of me, causing the heavy laptop to plummet right on top of my foot. The corner hit the head of the first metatarsal bone (near the joint at the base of the big toe). Lots of pain at first...immediate swelling and bruising. The pain has depleted quite a lot since this morning although it is a bit sore (I can walk on it reasonably okay). However I can't seem to flex my toe upward. This is bullocks because I am a very active person and we will be moving soon...if this doesn't resolve with ice and tylenol and ends up needing some sort of cast I shall be most displeased. Does anyone have any experience with this type of injury? And I must say this is my lucky foot, I've broken it twice before...my pinky toe was fractured by a horse and I had a piece of bone chip off close to the current injured spot several years ago. The latter injury didn't start bothering me until almost two days after what I suspected caused it, though.
