i stubbed my little toe and it hurt like hell (more than usual

Resolved Question:

i stubbed my little toe and it hurt like hell (more than usual toe stubbing). it's stopped hurting now and i can move it but when i curl my toes, it curls briefly and then lifts up while all other toes are still curled.

it doesn't hurt when i'm sat down but when i stand up, it feels like there's a pin sticking into my nail from underneath and is quite painful.

it's red but not swollen. does it need attention or should i man up? thanks!
