That is so strange ----- I have a bruise like that on the base of my 3rd toe from yesterday! I still can't figure that out!
I'm not sure what yours is. Obviously, keep a close eye on it and note any changes.
All of the "bee stinging" feelings on my toes on both feet never went away from when I posted last night. They felt like they were on FIRE!!!!
Never got swollen or red, but around 11:00pm-ish last night I noticed the bruise on my right toe and a couple of red "bite" markings on my left toes.
Kept putting Benadryl, Solarcaine, etc. on them. All that did was give VERY temporary relief. I slept with socks on, to keep the ointment on. I knew it was gonna be a long night.
Man, was I right! After reapplying whatever I could find in the dark several times last night, they hurt SO bad that I ended up putting cold gel packs from the freezer around my toes.
This was around 3:45am or so. I put the frozen gel packs in baggies, wrapped them around my socks, then put bigger baggies on my feet. I looked like such a dork.
It worked for a while, then my toes would get too cold and I'd rip the baggies off. What a miserable night.
My toes are starting to show more red "bite" marks or something as the day goes on. They're still stinging today, but not quite as badly. They're just getting more reddish and you can see the location of the little devils better.
What's strange is that they don't look like actual ant bites --- I don't know WHAT they look like. I'm worried because my hands are stinging a bit and they're showing the same kind of reddish marks on the 1st and 2nd fingers at the base and going to the knuckle on my hands.
Maybe that's where I was brushing something off my toes? I don't know. I don't need this today --- I have a 2 day sleep study that starts tonight and I really need to get it done tonight and tomorrow night. Arrrrgggghhhhhh..........
Sorry for the novel. If you figure out what your bruise or bite is, please let me know! I just think that's weird that we both have this bruise thing out of nowhere.
Gotta run. Need to get organized and follow up on lots of stuff right now ----- IF I can concentrate! Good luck to you!
Take care, terri3boys
