I'm a bit paranoid as I've been on rather high doses of Prednisone for nearly a year and in the past few months my vision script
has doubled. Last week I was awakened by foot pain throughout the night - woke up to swolling, pain & no bruising. I went to the Dr and they exrayed it - still havent heard the results.
Now it's been almost a week & my foot is no different. Last night I consulted Dr. Google and found that my situation fits to a "T" for a stress fracture of the metatarsal bones in my foot. They don't typically show on exray, but do on MRI or CT. Also - these do not always get treated, or the victim gets a walking boot to wear. Given the Prednisone - I would like to get a boot & not end up with a full fracture & cast.
The only thing that may have caused this - I wore a pair of my old trusty heel boots and was at the mall with my 4 year old. I do recall that one of my feet got to hurting really bad as she walks 100 miles an hour. The pain however, began 36 hours after the mall treck....
How would you proceed from here if this were you?
Thanks for readin this long winded post :)
