Re: Bone bruise?
Yesterday I was told that I have a bone bruise (this is like my 2nd or 3rd diagnosis now) in my foot on my fifth metatarsal - and the podiatrist couldn't tell me how long it would take to clear up. Meanwhile, it's still still painful to walk normally, and the celebrex wears off halfway through the day. I think I've had such bruises before (like the time I fell on an 8-pound handweight and had a bump and bruise on my shin for over a year) but they didn't interfere with my mobility and exercising, etc, like this has. Basically there are tiny micro fractures on the surface of the bone, and so on.
