Question strange foot pain

I had pain in my left foot approximately 6 weeks ago. I had surgery (unrelated) scheduled and figured with my resting/recovery from surgery my foot would get better. It did not. I have never had any foot problems before. Two weeks ago I decided enough was enough and went to a podiatrist. The Dr. took an x ray and he said it shows a stress fracture on top of my foot near the third toe. He gave me a walking boot for outside the house and a Darco shoe for inside the house and said to stay off of it and to use an ace bandage at night. So I did as he said. Well, this all seems to be helping it is not 100% better yet but there is improvement. How long until full recovery? The doctor said about one more week and then I should be able to wear sneakers on that foot. But I am not sure about that.

Also three days ago I started to have pain in my right foot on the bottom, and top of foot near middle toes and a little on the outside. The pain starts off minimal and gradually increases. It also sometimes goes up my foot to my ankle. The strange thing is this happens at rest! I do not have any pain when wearing shoes and walking. Has anyone experienced this before? I did make a dr. appt for Monday but I am wondering if anyone has anything to share that might help me get through the weekend? Thank you.

Re: strange foot pain

I actually have a stress fracture on my tibia beginning right above the joint. I did not have to be non-weight bearing but wore a boot for four weeks and now a have a custom made brace. The brace was made before I got the stress fracture for my foot that I had ptt surgery. My doctor said it takes 6-8 weeks for a stress fracture to heal. I had new x-rays this past week, at the 4 week mark, showing bone growth so I was allowed out of the boot. I knew it would be good news prior to going to the doctor because my foot was feeling so good.

Re: strange foot pain

thank you for replying! My biggest concern right now (due to the intense pain and uncomfortable sensations) is my right foot which does not have a diagnosis yet. Do you have any ideas of why I have pain in so many different locations (on the bottom, and top of foot near middle toes and a little on the outside.)? Do you think they are related or could I be so "lucky" to have multiple issues going on? I feel a strange pinching feeling, as if I want to pull my toes to relieve pain/pressure, which I would never do but that is what I automatically feel like doing. I am so afraid to touch anything so I don't make anything worse.

Does anyone know about or had a displaced stress fractures? Could it be that? How are they fixed? Thanks! I can not wait till Monday morning's appointment!
