I fell in early June, and have been having pain every since. It’s a sharp, shooting intermittent pain on the top of my foot between the 4th and 5th metatarsal. My doctor did an X-ray and determined nothing was broken. Since then, I’ve been on prescription strength aleve and using a metatarsal pad. I just had an ultrasound done on my foot, and they found bursitis between metatarsal 2&3 and 3&4, but nothing to explain the pain (my doctor originally thought it was a neuroma). The radiologist said he thought my foot was broken and was surprised that nothing showed in X-rays. I can’t get in to the podiatrist for another month. I can’t wear shoes, and I’m a teacher so I can’t stay off my foot. I feel completely at a loss as to what to do with this pain. What else could it be?
