Avatar n tn While running/ strenuous activities are best avoided for a few weeks, the fracture should not affect running or other physical activities. Hope this is helpful. Take care!
Avatar n tn My stress fracture in my foot(4th metatarsal) occured in November 2009. Almost 14 months later, I am still in a lot of pain and cannot even think about running. I have always been an active person and an athlete and I'm about to go crazy! Initially, the stress fracture was not found because it was too small to show up on an Xray. I eventually had an MRI done and it found the fracture. I was put in a walking boot for 3 months, and then attemped weight bearing regular walking.
Avatar n tn I've get heart palpitations a lot, espicially after i exercise and I'm starting to get injured more frequently. I think i have a stress fracture on my left foot kind of under the big toe (ball of the foot) that hasn't gone away since last November. Not only that, but on the top of my left foot when i flex it hurts and it might be another stress fracture so i'm told, and a left leg pain-i don't know if it's a shin splint because it's higher up, but it hurts when i run on it.
Avatar m tn 7 months ago I was out running when my foot cracked, i didn't roll it or step on un-even ground. I put my foot down as i would any other time. After having an X-Ray, I was told I had a stress fracture at the base of the fifth metatarsal, apparently a common injury for active people & military recruits. I am currently in the military and regularly exercise.
Avatar n tn While reading through the records, I discovered that I had a cuboid fracture to my right foot that I was never told about. I am pissed! I am only 22. I have been dealing with pain ever since the accident. I can't go rock climbing because of the pain. My doctor just told me that it would get better, and that I had to give it time. How rediculous! I have scheduled an appointment with a podiatrist.
Avatar m tn I'm not sure what topic this would go under, I have been having foot pain on the top of foot, below the bend on the top of foot, and its slightly brused, can anyone give me an idea of what is happening, my activites are daily walking, running and bike riding 7 miles a day. recently I have not done so much in my activites due to sore foot. Thanks.
493946 tn?1209476995 I decided to get an MRI of the foot since I knew of the old fracture years before and the pain mimicked what I could recall. Initially, radiologists were focused on chondromalacia at the medial calcaneo-talar surface. Assuming arthritis, I persisted with training on a modified schedule. As March rolled around and the intensity of the training increased, so did the discomfort of the lateral midfoot.
Avatar f tn I did a 5 mile run yesterday (35 miles over 8 days). I felt no pain whilst I was running, only after my stretches after I had stopped. I initially had tenderness in my right thigh and inner part of lower leg at the front. I found it quite painful puuting weight on for the rest of the day- due to the pain in my lower leg. On going to bed the pain completely shifted away from my leg to the top part of my foot/ big toe and I noticed I had what looked like a small bit of bone sticking out.
441781 tn?1204844957 I have a spiral fibula fracture. I could not put my foot in walking position. My lower left leg was casted for the first two weeks and I was no weight bearing. Doctor told me at the end of the two weeks I would get a walking cast. During that time the pain was terrible. I passed out because of the pain. At the two weeks, I visited my doctor and he said looks good see you in four weeks and I was still no weight bearing. No explanation.

Avatar m tn My son broke his tib/fib four inches above his ankle during a college football game on october 2,2008 it was a simple fracture with no surgery needed .He is twenty years old in great condition.He was in a cast for five weeks and has been in a walking boot for three weeks now with some weigh bearing.The doc gave him some bands to work with and told him to come back on december 16, 2008.When do you think he wiil be walking then running on it.He is the starting 1st. baseman in college.
Avatar f tn I broke the base of my 5th metatarsal in a transverse fracture, 4mm displaced, running close to but not into the space between the 4th and 5th met. A non-Jones fracture I've been told. It's now 9 weeks and only minimal healing. I was pretty much NWB for 4 weeks, then started WB but foot is extremely sore. Was taken out of a fiberglass cast at 6 weeks, put into an aircast, PWB.
Avatar f tn Had another MRI three weeks ago that showed the same mild plantar fasciitis and now the bone marrow edema in four bones of the foot. The fracture seems to have healed, which is good, but the pain is still here! He is now saying he thinks the pain is from the plantar fasciitis. He told me to take Advil twice a day and stretch and ice my foot again! He did not seem worked up at all by the marrow edema. He said that it is just fatty edema and that some people just have it!
Avatar m tn Well, without an evaluation it would be difficult to determine the cause of the foot pain in your case. This may be related to the fracture, plantar fasciitis, spurs or other degenerative conditions. It is possible to continue to have a stress fracture over months when it is not given due attention and appropriate care.
Avatar m tn My surgeon said that I was an excellent patient and can start transitioning back to my normal active lifestyle (running/jogging, tennis, swimming, etc). I try to run for 15 minutes 2 times a week. My question are: 1. What are the chances of me making a complete recovery to where I can eventually run long distances and not feel pain or weakness? 2. Am I putting to much stress on my recovering ankle too fast? Ultimately, I just want to be able to enjoy the activities I love.
Avatar f tn I have a calcaneus fracture that I got from running trails. I was training for a 1/2 marathon (road run) and broke it a week before the race. At first the doctor thought it was a peroneal tendon tear, so I received a shot of cortisone and did pt (actually tried to run on a treadmill). All this was to try to get me to be able to run the 1/2 marathon. Needless to say, I did not run and returned to the doctor.
Avatar f tn I am almost at the four month point. Upon injury I was told that I needed surgery. I have a L3 burst fracture without any neurological damage. I have rods and screws placed two vertebrea above and below the injury. I have been doing lots of research on this and have heard lots of different outcomes. Days before my surgery I was placed in a back brace which I currently reside in. I am not currently in a great deal of pain, but it can get uncomfortable when I lye flat.
Avatar f tn Playing tennis yesterday, I was running to the net and heard a soft popping noise on the bottom of my foot. I stopped immediately because i could not bear weight on my heel. I applied ice and today it is still hard to bear weight. Of course it's the weekend and I can't call my physician until Monday. What do you think is wrong and what should I do in the meantime?
Avatar f tn I ended up on my knees and elbows and she ended up kind of over me but with the most of her weight (and her shin it seems), in the soft spot between my ankle and my heel on the outside of my right foot. Immediately my toes went numb, but that only lasted 10 to 15 minutes. I could then and still can move my toes, so I wasn't at all concerned about a break. It was very tender for the first couple of days. Now it's alright, as long as I am not walking too much on it.
Avatar n tn About a week later I went to an orthopedic surgeon, they did a CT scan and found that I had an avulsion fracture and needed surgery asap. I had the surgery, of which they put a plate, four screws, and some bone in me. After about six weeks of recovery and getting out of the cast, the Dr. released me to start walking and then the following week I could start running, and the week after I could go back to work full time, riding and training horses.
Avatar m tn I loved it, so I joined an intense exercise class - 3 days a week, 1 hour each class, of running, jumping, boxer's jog, etc. One Wednesday morning I went out for a jog on my own and was on the grass. I hit an uneven spot and when my foot rolled inward, I felt a sharp pain in my knee. It wasn't bad at first, so I went to class that night and Friday night, though I was limping by then. By Saturday I couldn't put any weight on it without intense pain.
Avatar f tn feels like a bruise, have resorted to putting more pressure on the inside of my foot - Bruised feeling while running or hopping - Swelling at site where fracture was So, I'm experiencing this pain and it's 10 months later, in which I did Physical Therapy, got a cortisone injections, and shockwave treatment. Also, I've gotten 2 CT Scans and 3 MRI's, and they have shown nothing, just a healed fracture. So, my question is, what the heck can be wrong?
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 f tn My daughter, 14, has a knot on the outside of her ankle just above the knobby bone and on the top of her foot. She hurt these two areas at separate times while running. She is a softball player and runs track. We had both areas x-rayed and the x-rays did not show a fracture in either area. We have applied ice and heat and also given her anti-inflamatory medicine for 8 weeks. She tried jogging again and it is hurting again and seems to be worse. I have made an appointment with a podiatrist.
Avatar m tn As an adult (I am 43 yrs old now) I have done most normal activities that would involve the foot like playing baseball, basketball, running (I even did ultramarthons for a while 10 yrs ago) and rock climbing. But even through the ability to adapt and still function satisfactorily it has caused me alot of problems from lots of pain, bone bruises, blisters, and a big toenail riddled today with 28 years of fungus buildup, the list goes on.
Avatar n tn 1. How safe is it to run barefoot outside? 2. Is it safe to run barefoot on a track surface? 3. What type of ankle protection is the best for short distances? 4. Are there any exercises recommended for keeping the bones around the ankle safe? 5. What type of running shoe is best for performance while considering ankle safety?
1333534 tn?1282134055 Back in early April, I started to notice that my right foot was becoming swollen, and my running shoe was hardly fitting. I decided to take a break from the walks and let it heal. A couple of weeks passed, and it was still the same. My regular, casual shoes will fit fine, but my runners are VERY tight on that side. It has been nearly two months now, and I still have some pain while walking, sleeping, and it is still a little swollen, but not nearly as bad. What should I do about this?
Avatar f tn I posted previously about my son having been hit in the lower leg between the calf and ankle, by a baseball and was experience foot pain. After several days he was better, however the pain and swelling reappeared a week or so later. After a MRI, he has been put in a walking boot for 8 weeks, then follow up with the doctor for possible Physical Therapy, or possibly have to wear the boot for an additional month.
1637739 tn?1371692306 I finally saw a podiatrist this past Tuesday. My left foot has a fracture and a neuroma! I'm in a boot for 8 weeks! I hope you get some relief soon!
