Injury recovery time

Hi
Went to see a podiatrist at the weekend as I've had pain in my forefoot for about 10 days. He's diagnosed a possible stress fracture or maybe ligament damage caused by a combination of poor footwear and over pronation.

He says I shouldn't run for 2-3 weeks and that if I still get pain after this time with my new stabilising trainers I might need orthotics.

Anyone else had a similar experience? How long did you take you to recover? Did you recover completely? Did you do other types of training instead?
Any experience or advice appreciated

In my experince sports injury people always tell you to rest for 2-3 weeks or so. it's obvious advice. chances are your injury will get get better if you don't run for 2-3 weeks if you don't run. you don't need an expert to tell you that!being told that you might have a stress fracture is not good enough in my opinion. Go to someone else who can give some a more defintivre opinion. i would suggest getting the advice from people at your local running club who wil know about effective thearpists that have helped tehm in the past.
