I broke my little toe 3 months ago and have been keeping it

Customer Question

I broke my little toe 3 months ago and have been keeping it buddy taped because it didn't seem quite all the way healed. Today it started twitching. Is this just a sign that I should stop taping it?
JA: Have you seen a doctor about this yet? What medications are you taking?
Customer: No medications. And no.
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: no.
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Neurologist about your situation and then connect you two.

I'm Dr Chaithanya attending you

Yes, if you don't have pain while walking when it is not taped, you need not tape

Leave it so, and 3 months is sufficient time to get healed

I suggest you take an x ray once to know if the fracture has healed and to know to what extent it has healed.

Hope this helps
