Hey, I have had foot pain for the last month and it has stopped me doing all phys, so I went to the docs yesterday and he said he thinks I have a stress fracture in my Metatarsal (sometimes called a March Fracture). I have to go for an X-Ray to confirm this but he's pretty confident thats what it is. The treatment is purely rest, rest and more rest... for up to 8 weeks. Bloody hell. Has anyone out there had a similar injury and have you any tips to improve the healing time? He suggested trying a metatarsal pad but I have no idea of how effective they would be. Thanks for help...
