Foot Pain on top of foot, but no fractures…

I went to my doctor recently, because for the past few months or so I have been experiencing pain on the top of my left foot, just up the foot slightly from my 2nd, 3rd, and 4th toes.
My doctor didn’t even look at the foot, just ordered x-rays, stating it must be a fracture.
While, the x-rays came back showing no fracture, but now my doctor is on vacation for 3 weeks and I’m still in pain!
I have stopped running (had been running for a couple of months, but the pain started earlier).
I’m wondering what types of things are common for this type of pain.
Everything I read on top of foot pain is usually related to a fracture.
So I’m stumped!
Thanks for your help!KC

    While it is possible that your pain is related to a fracture, the time frame seems long. Other possibilities include a nerve entrapment, biomechanical problem, or even a problem with your running shoe. If you are that concerned and your doctor is away see who is covering the practice and get an appointment.
