Well I somehow managed to separate my toenail from my toe and it hurts so bad. I was actually sent home from work because I was so dizzy from pain that I couldn't do my job. :( When it first happened it hurt, but wasn't unmanageably painful so I soaked my foot in salt water. It was bleeding. Now I've put a sock back on to keep it clean and I'm terrified to look at it since it's been all day. I can feel the nail move and it makes me dizzy and sick to my stomach. I have very poor pain tolerance and a weak stomach. So for now I'm keeping it propped up and being careful not to bump it. I might try to put a bandaid on it later to stabilize the nail (it's not broken, just separated). Anyone else ever done this have any suggestions? I don't have to be back at work until Monday so I hope I'm okay to wear shoes by then. Anyone know how long it take for the skin under the nail to heal? I know it will take a while for the nail to grow back out and reattach, but just curious how long it'll hurt. Anyway sorry for the downer post. Thanks in advance for any advice. I hope everyone has a great rest of the weekend.
