We all stub our toes or dropped something on our feet once in a while, but sometimes the pain doesn't go away, and we discover we have a broken toe. There are 26 bones in the feet, of which 14 are phalanges or toe bones. Our toes are very important to maintaining balance while walking, so when we injure our toes, even to a minor degree, we notice it immediately.

1.  How Do I Know If I Have a Broken Toe?

Unless you can see the bone or the toe is sitting at a strange angle, it can be hard to tell the difference between a broken toe and one that has just been badly stubbed. If you experience pain for more than a few days, see serious discoloration, or have difficulty walking, you probably have a broken toe.
