Hi, I am a 19 year old life guard [F] who jumped off my lifeguard stand and had immediate foot pain. I don’t remember twisting my ankle or anything like that but had immediate pain around and behind my 5th metatarsal base. I didn’t have any immediate swelling or bruising but was unable to put weight on it so I used crutches for a few days before going to the doctor. I was sent out for xrays but my doctor only got a report and never saw them and thinks it’s possible they missed a small fracture. He also said i probably have soft tissue damage and has referred me to a podiatrist but as it is workers comp it’s taking a while to get an appointment. I eventually did get some swelling but when it went down and my foot felt a bit better I ditched the crutches for a few hours and the pain came back just as bad as it had been. What do you think is going on? I know I can just wait but I’m a nursing student and curious.
