I had a stress fracture in my metatarsal once- the dr repeatedly fobbed me off on several visits.
The pain was excruciating. It wasn't at first though, which confused me and also possibly the doctor. But as time went by I was in agony walking on it. I can only describe it as feeling like someone had pretty much put my metatarsals in a food blender! It took ages to heal but by time it was diagnosed it was already healing. It was only my physio at the time sending me off to A&E for an x ray that finally got it sorted.
I recently had a touch of tendonitis in my foot and was very paranoid it was another SF at first because it started out similarly pain wise - however loosening my shoe laces seemed to ease the discomfort and a bit of ice and ibruprofen really helped - when I had my sf, nothing ever even touched the pain even prescription drugs!
