Toe: broken or bruised? (disregard previous message)

Hi, I left this exact message on a previous post a couple of hours ago, so if you haven't read the other message it is below...I just wanted to say I do have some bruising, but the bruising is not on the toe itself, it is right underneath the toe on my foot at the joint, but is not very dark. Thank you!

I was angry last night, and stupidly kicked a wet dry vac across the floor....my middle toe instantly started to hurt badly, and I couldn't walk on it....strangely, it isn't swollen or bruised, but today I still cannot walk on it, it hurts very badly. It feels stiff, and the pain is on the bottom of my foot under my toe more than anything. It doesn't hurt too badly when I'm not walking. I know there isn't anything I can do for it even if it is broken, but I would like to know if you have an idea of what I have done to it! I can bend my toe at the "knuckle" slightly, but when I try to bend it further, it hurts too bad, and gets stiff. Any help would be appreciated, thank you!

The HealWell Night splint is designed to comfortably position the foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion to provide a gentle stretch to the plantar fascia and Achilles Tendon. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle contracture, inflammation and associated pain. It has also been clinically proven to reduce symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
