Unhappy toe turned white all by itself- freaked me out!

Hi All,

I was just sitting at the computer yesterday, barefoot, and looked down and noticed my 4th digit toe on my left foot had turned bone white.
Never in my life have seen anything like this happen before. I know feet sometimes indicate other problems..........anyway I soaked my feet in hot water and it came back.

The only thing I can think of is I hit my foot last week on a chair leg around the front pretty hard, though that is a long shot. Obviously I don't want to take my shoes off one day and find an amputation is on order!

I guess I'm mostly scared because I have no health insurance, am unemployed and am about to get booted off unemployment next week. One trip to the emergency room and there goes house and home.

I've always had pretty good circulation. Does anybody know anything that might contribute to this? High blood pressure? Diet?
thanks for comments
