Broken Blood Vessel?
Does anyone know why a blood vessel would suddenly break in your foot? Where my big toe attaches to the rest of my foot on the bottom of foot is all black,blue and purple. The toe just started hurting all of a sudden today. It was not discolored at that time. It was a cross between a real sharp pain and a deep down itch. I thought something had bitten me at first, but I couldn't see anything. I had to rub the toe because the pain was so intense. This went on for a few minutes, then I just forgot about it. About two hours later, I was in the shower, and noticed that where the toe had been hurting it was all bruised. I know I didn't do anything to it. I was sitting still when it started hurting and had only socks on. The only thing I could come up with was that a blood vessel broke for no reason.
