Stress Fracture

  1. Anyone ever had a stress fracture??? How were you treated? I'm afraid I have some in my right foot. Xrays didn't show anything but it kills me to walk and even to press on the gas and brake while driving. Thanks!

    Have you looked into plantar fascitis? (not giving medical advice:uhoh21: ) Is the pain in the bottom of your foot or up into your leg?

    even stress fractures should be casted for healing purposes...yes, it can happen spontaneously or so I've heard since I don't give medical advice on here due to rules of terms of service, etc. So this isn't intended to be medical advice, just urban legends I've heard ....

    Sorry - but this is asking for medical advice. Please see your provider and take care.
