I've developed a pain on the side of my foot, it started as mild pain and is now quite bothersome as it hurts even when I'm resting.
I've read that these fractures can happen to when there is an increase in sports training and the muscles in the foot do not have the strength and endurance needed to cope with the increased activity levels and are unable to provide the support needed to the foot bones. I haven't increased my activity so I'm wondering if PMR - weakened muscles can cause a stress fracture. A year ago, I had an insufficiency fracture of the pelvis due to a vitamin D defficiency but the last time I checked it had increased to optimum levels.Could it be that I've developed osteoporosis from the Prednisone..
I'm going to try and get the GP to order an x-ray on Monday but I'm pretty sure what it is because years ago, I stubbed my little toe and broke my 5th metatarsal on the same foot and this feels the same.
