I fell over and this happened....

Earlier today, I fell down 2 to 4 steps on the staircase in my house, and my big toe on my left foot is in EXCRUIATING pain, normally I don't cry over pain, but this pain is absolutely excruiating. I need your help to tell me what the diagnosis of my big toe on my left leg is because I probably have to go to the hospital soon.

Hi there!

Well, without an evaluation it would be difficult to identify the cause of your pain. Possibilities include fractures, dislocations/ subluxations, ligament/ tendon injuries/ tears, infection, inflammation etc. It would be best to get this evaluated by an orthopedician at your earliest convenience or the ER for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management. Meanwhile you may try some ice-packs and NSAIDS for pain relief.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
