Xrays show no fractures and pain can subside and the recur to the extent I can barely walk or bear weight. Can pinpoint specific spots of pain along top of foot toward the ankle side of 4th metatarsal. Third (middle) toe is swollen–no breaks shown on Xray for this either. Waiting for a referral from family doc, but wondering what this might be: stress fracture not showing up on Xray? Arthritis? Lack of mobility is a real pain!
