Feels like broken 1st metatarsel

Hi:After golfing yesterday, I’ve developed pain in the 1st metatarsel (mostly on the out-side of the foot/bone), with some localized swelling.
I’m wondering if this could be a stress fracture of some kind and wondering what to do to treat it???
I’m planning on seeing my PCP tomorrow, but wondered- Any thoughts?
Thanks!

  1. After examining you, I would most likely get an x-ray. If that was inconclusive, I would consider further tests such as a MRI. I also suggest you see a podiatrist or orthopedist.
