Resolved Question:

I'm 42 and heavily over weight. I jumped down from a wall onto concrete about two feet high, and landed badly. My toe is sore and has turned a deep blue bruise on the under side. It's not a problem to walk on. Pain is about the same as if I'd stubbed it an hour ago. Slight twinge but persistent. Relatives think the bruising indicates a more serious injury. How can I tell if it's broken or not?
