ILiveInFlipFlops Posted September 15, 2012 Share Posted September 15, 2012 (edited) I just walked across oldest DD's room to switch off her light and stepped on a sewing needle she had sticking out of her carpet (from an uncleaned-up project). It was a needle big enough to handle embroidery floss, and it drove into my heel a good half-inch, eye-side up (I think, it's kind of a blur after the pain). I felt it hit bone *faints* Anyway, it's not bleeding much, but it hurts like he!!. I had a tetanus shot less than a year ago. Do I need to go to a doctor about this right away, or is it something I just address if signs of infection appear? Thanks :( ETA: OK, does the answer change now that we know the eye portion of the needle is broken off and probably still deep in my heel? I think I'm going to be sick.
