Metatarsal stress fracture – feeling a bit fed up!

Will do. Hope you manage to get some feedback on your progress, or lack of!

Metatarsal stress fracture – feeling a bit fed up!

Posted: Yesterday at 08:59

I wouldn't say it's ever been agony. Will just be happy to know - I think! GP initially said osteoarthritis & nothing he could do. Physio reckoned seamoisitis but her treatment didn't seem to do anything. Had to see another Physio on the practice as the original one was busy and it was her that suggested x-ray, but was advised to bypass this in favour of MRI.

No boot for you or anything like that? What was the advice on shoes? I find that I'm sore after a normal day at work and niggly after walking anywhere (although the the consultant said to go on my hill walking holiday, just no running). Not convinced it's getting any better no it's 14 weeks since I last ran (with the exception of a test run - 3 miles - around week 8).

Frustrating rich57, but bide your time and you'll get back to it.  

I'm currently playing the waiting game with a foot injury. Felt like I had a stone in my shoe - told not to run, had Physio & am now waiting for the results of an MRI - getting them next week, 5 weeks after it was done. No idea what's ado but it's not getting any better through rest.

RW v Fetch June Running Challenge

Posted: 27/06/2015 at 07:31

Morning folks, just checking in. Well done on your May win, how's June going?

Still no running here. Did try a short run (3 mile) but followed by a short hill walk a couple of days later, it left me sore for a few days.

Not really much further on, but resolution may be in sight. Physio hasn't really helped so was referred to a consultant. He doesn't think it's arthritis (yay!) - some degeneration in the toes but not the troublesome one and he said it's not unusual as we age/exercise. He's requested an MRI to get to grips with what is going on, so all being well I'll know soon and can resolve it! Everything crossed!! 

Hope you're all enjoying your running and staying injury free

I'm in the fortunate position of having private healthcare through my husband's work so have held off on podiatry in the hope that I'll be referred if need be. I've got some padding for my shoes. Now got an appointment to consult further by phone tomorrow and will hopefully get X-rays sorted out sooner rather than later.

Cal, I too teach (thankfully not PE) and have found my other leg achilles niggling as I'm in trainers just now all day. It often niggles though so am trying to treat it well in the hope that it doesn't get any worse!

Aaaargh! I've now had 5 weeks off running. Been going to Physio, having acupuncture and ultrasound. I've not walked more than 20-30 mins at a time (until yesterday when I walked about 3 miles). Felt like I had a stone in my shoe and foot's been sore since.

Physio today recommended an X-ray as they're not doing much for me other than trying to find ways to ease the pain. Worried that maybe the doc was right about OA!!! A little scared of what might be found. Really missing running (& walking)!

Parkruns in London

Posted: 21/05/2015 at 07:00

The only London Parkrun I've done is Gunnersbury. I did it a couple of years ago when I was down on holiday. From what I remember the route was fairly flat and much of it was on the park paths. It was very friendly and only a couple of tube stops from the Premier Inn at Earls Court (get off at Acton Town) which made it easy for me!

Thanks LM.H, how are you? When did you earn the .?

 Thanks Princess Leah for such detailed information. I definitely need to do more stretching. I go to Pilates and have found that painful afterwards but need to stretch more as I am tight in the Achilles, calf, hamstring! Glad to hear you've recovered, albeit from a long road and perseverance.
