Okay so Im on Humira, and I dont know if thats why but I broke my toe on Dec 21st (my fourth toe/metatarsel?) the third bone down in my toe and it won't heal.
 
Its been 4 weeks and my toe looks like a freakin sausage, throbs constantly and stays completely swollen all the time. Its purple and blue and never quits hurting. I can't wear normal shoes...
 
any suggestions? I walked around in a boot for 2 weeks (what a pain in the booty!) and I had it taped for 3 weeks.

Anyone can give up, it's the easiest thing in the world to do. But to hold it together when everyone else would understand if you fell apart, that's true strength

Dx'd w/Crohn's colitis in May05--spread to ileum & small intestine as of April08. Currently on Humira every 2wks, Pentasa, Entocort, Phenergan, Lomotil, Celexa, Lortab, Ambien, and new this week Zoloft.

It could be the Entocort. I know it isn't suppose to absorb into your system, but I know that it takes forever for anything to heal in/on me (cuts, bruises, broken bones) because of my prednisone.

Sad to say but I think this type of break takes more time than this. It sounds too early to be trying regular shoes. How long did your doc tell you it would take? I would see your doctor ASAP if you think it really is getting worse in case it is an infection.
Diagnosed early 2007 with rectal Crohn's.  Several peri-rectal abscesses and two fistulas with setons.  Allergic to Remicade and Humira.  Currently on 6MP.
