Is my toe broken?

I dropped a very heavy fiestaware bowl on my bare foot yesterday.. it hurt very bad I felt nauseous immediately after and felt like I was going to pass out.. it took the nail polish right off of my toe and now my toe has been throbbing ever since and occasionally I have a very sharp shooting pain... is it broken? Should I go to the doctor or is there nothing that can be done? Ibuprofen does not seem to help the pain at all.. thank you! Sorry for the gross photo..

    Yes definitely I’ve done it twice

    There is a subunginal hematoma, blood under the nail, which will fill better drained. Only an X-ray will tell if it’s broken, but the treatment is buddy taping regardless.
