    Turf Toe

    I have been afflicted with tuf toe going on for two weeks now. I'm seriously thinking of a trip to the orthopedist or podiatrist for a steriod injection. Anyone else been so unlucky to have turf toe? Lane -- Lp

    Are you sure it is turf toe? It might be a medical condition called gout, which is a type of arthritis, instead.

    I've had both. Turf toe occurs after an injury. Gout can too but usually just happens.

    Yeah I've had it before too, hyperextension injury. Never had gout but seen more than enough come through our local ER

    How did you manage the turf toe? Lp

    For turf toe I recommend wearing a boot that keeps the joint from flexing, ice multiple times each day and anti-imflamatory meds. Pain meds can be helpful too.

    Would that be the same as a stubbed toe?

    Oh I used to be disgusted and now I try to be amused. But since their wings have got rusted, you know, the angels wanna wear my red shoes. But when they told me 'bout their side of the bargain, that's when I knew that I could not refuse. And I won't get any older, now the angels wanna wear my red shoes.
