How can I go from a great 5 mile run...almost pain free to TODAY...
Doc not sure why my foot is still tender and wants me get a CAT SCAN even thought the X-RAYS looked good. I am irritated because he did nothing he just touched my foot in a few places and that was it. CAT SCANS are expensive but I do want to know what the heck I am dealing with. After the doc I had a meeting and then my class that I teach on Monday nights. I had a hard time not being grumpy and found myself "teaching" and rotating my foot, stretching my foot, standing on my toes, bending my foot....and came to the conclusion that I am fine. Most of those stretches felt fine. I am confused, frustrated and not sure what to do. I know I will get through this but the thought of SUNSHINE, SUMMER and NO RUNNING makes me want to cry!!(and I have cried today!!)
So what do you think? Anyone have a stress fracture that didn't show up on a X-RAY?
Everything I can find says that you can usually see a stress fracture on and X-RAY and occasionally need a CAT SCAN or MRI.
