Could this be a stress fracture?
I tripped and fell on July 4th in my driveway and thought I had sprained my left ankle and foot.
I stayed off of it for a few days and put ice pack on it.
Since then, My foot has only gotten worse. I did not get any Xrays nor have I gone to the doctor yet. I have a small knot on the side of my foot near the middle of my foot.
Over the past few weeks the pain has spread radiating across my foot in the area below my ankle and especially across the top of my foot.
It is really tender in the area by the knot and now I am having nerve twinges that startle me cause they are really intense pain.
They don’t last long tho.
I can pin point the pain area to be in the area below my little toe and the next one but its in the middle top area of my foot. The top part of my foot swells when I walk on it…and my foot is stiff and the pain is bad at first when I stand up after being off the foot for awhile.
I still have trouble bearing weight on it.
I think it was probally not just a sprain now.Could this be a stress fracture?
What should I do now?
