Re: Metatarsal injury?

You should have been icing your foot to control swelling and pain. Also you have find wrapping it with a 3" wide bandage will help provide support and control swelling until you are able to see a Dr. You can probably expect x-rays. You don't mention bruising or swelling, do have have some? What caused your injury? -eko

Re: Metatarsal injury?

I thought I had a metatarsal injury this fall, the top of my foot hurt and there was some swelling. My Dr. ordered an x-ray, didn't see anything but a lot of arthritis (bonus from old injuries) and thought that I had aggrevated it. Perhaps you have a similar issue. Let us know what you find out. Good Luck!

Sonic- Maybe we have the same Dr. . Same diagnosis, maybe we are getting old... Take your anti-inflamatory, my Dr. didn't give me anything for mine. Best wishes! -eko
