My broken toe was diagnosed by an x-ray.

I self-diagnosed my broken toe. It's pretty obvious your toe's broken when it is sideways.

Recently on a picnic I sat with my legs stretched out in front. A friend sat down on my left foot and we all heard a loud crack. He had sat down on my foot which was in an upright position. The toe was extremely painful and now 3 weeks later I am still unable to wear closed in footwear. I can move the toe, there was no swelling, bruising or misalignment. I cannot bear pressure on the nail bed or to the flesh at the end of the toe. I think if it continues I may have to seek medical advice as I am unable to take anti-inflammatories such as ibuprofen, aspirin, etc.

I broke my toe by doing some sort of Kung Fu fighting in my sleep. I actually kicked a hole in the wall. In addition to breaking my toe, I have been diagnosed with REM sleep disorder.
