Big toe pain, possible fracture

I think I may have a fractured in big toe. Can’t put weight on foot so walking on side of foot to prevent pressure on big toe. Going to doctors but will I need time off work or is it ok to work with fracture. I am on my feet 90% of day at work. Thank you.

    Hello and thank you for your question. First step is getting an xray to see if there is in fact a fracture of the big toe. If you didn’t have an injury or drop anything on your toe then it’s possible there is another issue going on. There are options include stiff soled shoes, anti-inflammatories and steroid injections for toe pain. I would see the Podiatrist and get an xray to have an accurate treatment plan. Good luck!
