Foot stress fracture symptoms

Common Questions and Answers about Foot stress fracture symptoms


Avatar n tn I think I may have a metatarsal stress fracture. I looked up all the symptoms and they pretty describe it perfectly. Although, before I run out to a doctor, is there any way I could feel it? 'Cause right over where the pain is I feel this 'lump' and it's not on my other foot. Thanks for any advice you can give me.
Avatar n tn I find that if I put the brunt of my weight on my heel when I walk that tempers the discomfort. Everything I have read points to a stress fracture. The thing is though, the “injury” did not occur due to an exercise related event. In fact, I do not workout at all, though I do walk a lot at work and bend the foot in question a lot when kneeling down. I have been placing an icepack on the foot daily for about 30 minutes three times per day.
Avatar n tn I had a stress fracture on my 3rd and 4th metatarsals about 3 years ago. I didn't know what it was until about 6 months after I first started getting really bad pains after wearing heels or going to long dance lessons. I'm hoping to become a professional dancer, so I never stopped dancing (in heels) to allow it to heal properly. I just took a few painkillers and got used to it. Recently, I ramped up my dancing hours to about 35 a week and the pain has got a whole lot worse.
Avatar f tn I just repeated the xray of the right ankle and it was dark in the area of the fracture. I fell March 19 and it has been 4 1/2 months since the fracture. Should it not be back to normal by now? I still have residual pain. I am only starting to be able to go down stairs properly but not consistently. I feel jarring in my right ankle and return to leading with the left foot down the stairs. I am set to return to my full duties at work.
Avatar f tn I was diagnosed with a medial malleous stress fracture from an ultrasound and put in an aircast. I am a marathon runner and was told that I could bike and swim while recovering. Both of these activities are very painful especially the biking. My symptoms seem to be getting worse after 7 days and it is very painful to put any weight on my right foot/ankle. Should I be on crutches and should I be completely resting and not trying to maintain my fitness while this heals?
Avatar n tn Yes indeed - a lot anxiety (and you have reason to have a lot if you're afraid you have had a sexual encounter with someone you think may have passed HIV to you) can cause many symptoms. Foot pain though? I don't think so. I've never seen any patient who exhibited foot pain because they were afraid they had HIV. I've seen diarrhea, vomiting, insomnia, aches and pains, headaches, nightmares, but never localized foot pain. (localized meaning in the same spot for months.
2019109 tn?1346850055 Well, a cam boot does nothing to the healing per say but transfers the body weight to avoid stress in the region of the fracture/ injury, thus aiding in the healing process. If the piece of bone is small, non-displaced and without any attachment, conservative management may be preferred. Interventional measures or surgery may be considered if conservative management fails and there are significant symptoms attributed to the fracture.
Avatar f tn Iam going back to my PT tomorrow so he can look at my foot and go from there,,he's thinking I might have stress fracture which will require an mri...Sorry about the rembling ...But whatever information on my foot will be a great help..
Avatar f tn Initial pain occured after running, bruised x 2 weeks. Went to PCP to rule out metatarsal stress fracture- x-rays clear on 2 occassions. I was put in a post-op boot to help keep pressure off and told to rest for 2 weeks. It has since been 9 weeks, and pain has radiated to other parts of foot and front of ankle. Also includes continuous "pins and needles" feeling. Pain oddly seems worse at rest.
Avatar m tn Xrays 2 months later showed minimal progress towards healing and a CT showed completion of the fracture with continued visualization of the fracture line, as well as the begining of a stress fracture in my tibia.I was placed in a air cast and have been trying to ignificantly reduce weight bearing and stopped the exercise. I am now using a bone stimulater as well. Is it going to work??
Avatar n tn By the time another half hour had passed it was twice the size of my left foot, the toes were in spasms and my whole foot was curled downward and trying to turn to the outside. I called my neurosurgeon's oncall number and the PA got back to me. She asked some detailed questions and said she would have the sirgeuon on call with her look at my MRI and see what he could tell.
Avatar m tn I would suggest you to take anti inflammatory medications, rest your feet for a day, use ice packs to decrease the inflammation and to change into appropriate foot wear when you start afresh. If symptoms continue then you would need an examination near an orthopedician to rule out complications. Take care!
Avatar n tn I had similar pain but on the inside of my foot, it was a very very tiny stress fracture. With about 3 weeks rest and physiotherapy it went away and have had no problems since (touch wood!
Avatar n tn I stepped into a hole in my backyard and was found to have a Cuboid fracture of my left foot. An MRI showed excessive amount of fluid around the tendons in my foot that overlap the cuboid bone. I was unable to bear any weight for a week. I wore a walking boot for 2 months and then a permanent cast for 8 weeks. After it's removal I attended 2 weeks worth of PT. My range of motion got better but was still quite limited.
Avatar m tn At that point it was determined that I had bone bruising to the cuboid and talus bones and it was bad enough to treat it as a stress fracture. Thus the cast's for 8 week total. They told me tha tthey was no ligamnet damage that showed up but I have to belive that ther was some maybe a streached nerve? I still have pain in the inside of my ankle side to side movemnet is okay but any twisting of the leg on the ankle joint is painful.
572651 tn?1531002957 My update - It is no surprise - I definitely have a stress fracture in my left foot - 3rd metatarsal if that means anything to you. I also have a rupture of the synovium on the 2nd metatarsal bone. That is the pocket of fluid that cushions the joint when we walk. For now my plan is to see if we can do a temporary patch job but the reality is eventually it will have to be surgically repaired .
Avatar n tn The orthopaedic docs have ruled out stress fracture and tendonitis. My blood work ups were normal.. no one seems to know what's going on, and then they pass me on to another specialist. Now I'm supposed to see a rheumatologist (1st appt avail was 7/19), but I don't have any pronounced joint pain or loss of mobility. The only time I have pain is when I point my toe down- the front of my lower leg, ankle & foot hurts. Pushing down w/ my toe does not hurt.
Avatar n tn I understood you first post and I believe my post related to NO by listing what the usual symptoms are, and I would have varified your symptoms to thyroid/nodule. Sorry I wasn't consice in my first post as well. So as to be concise in this post, as answer to your question of listed symptoms,is....NO! Your symptoms are not "associated to thyroid nodule/problem". Good Luck!
632093 tn?1230349566 Not from when it initially cracks, the one you keep feeling when you apply pressure to it while it's healing (accidentally, of coarse). I think maybe a stress fracture. It has been 2 weeks now, I keep it elevated and do not use it. The swelling is a lot better, though still existent. Increased, persistent prickly feeling. The bowing 2nd toe is also the 3rd now, all the time. Please advise.
Avatar n tn A co-worker recently had a stress fracture. A doctor at work said I should see a neurologist about the difference in my legs. Can anyone enlighten me or give me some suggestions. I am direct care at a state psych hospital.
Avatar n tn And yes, not only was the tooth extraction STRESSFUL situation but also I was under tremendous personal and financial stress. All of my initial severe symptoms at initial onset lasted for 8 weeks but I was left with permanent sequelae of some symptoms between attacks. I have read and had posts from others on different sites that everybody's symptoms can be different and no one is alike by any means for any disease.
Avatar f tn I typically run 20-30 miles per week (I started running 5 months ago) and noticed this problem a week ago after a 6 mile run. I am wondering if this could possibly be a stress fracture and what could be the cause of this grinding sensation? Thanks for any input.
Avatar m tn 28 Yr old Male, i have been under alot of stress with a very serious fracture to my foot last year. Since i went back to work, i have been under alot of work stress, and financial stress. Ive been experiencing some old symptoms i did when i was younger and in college. I find them similar to may of an anxiety attack? They have seemed to settle down with lots of rest and change in diet. But the past few days i have been having upset stomach again.
Avatar m tn Ignoring symptoms or adopting a 'no pain, no gain' attitude is likely to cause further damage and may slow healing or prevent healing of the cuboid stress fracture altogether. Immediate, appropriate treatment is essential to ensure a speedy recovery.
Avatar n tn The problem is sometimes those pregnancy symptoms are an awful lot like period symptoms (it's a bummer that nature works that way). But either way, I started having sore breasts and slight nausea within about a week or so after my IUI. The IUI worked and I did get pregnant... so although everyone is different, the symptoms started rather early for me. We'll cross our fingers for you and hopefully you'll have some good news in a week or so!
Avatar f tn I won't jog on it for long because I am afraid I will injure it, and if I do jog on it too hard or long i get pain after the workout and after I rest the foot, and after I wake up in the AM. Why????? is this a stress fracture, scar tissue?? Can i run through it and not injure my foot? Because i totally would, but I am so scared that I will injure it........ Thank you to anyone who read that jumbled mess.................
Avatar f tn I had an x ray, and it confirmed a stress line, of the cuneiform bone of foot. I was put in a cast for two weeks. I am now in a crepe bandage for a week. It is very pain and it really hurts on weight bearing. It is also painful at the back of my leg when I walk. Could you explain what a stress line is? and how long it will take to heal. I have bechets disease and I am on azathioprine treatment. I have also got surgical menopuase, I had my ovaries out 9 years back. I am on HRT.
4318763 tn?1352733854 Was the stress fracture not picked up on an XRay? Did you in fact get an XRay before having the MRI done? We haven't tried out the orthotics yet.
