Hope you're feeling better this morning. Unexpected pain is just part of getting older. Without diagnostic scans, etc. it may be that hitting painful areas with strong drugs such as cortisone may not be as effective as just splints and staying off it. Forget about any competitions for the time being. Good luck.

Slowly getting better. Lots of pain, but structurally seems fine. Just ligaments stretched out and inflamed.

And early arthritis? Some kind of stress fracture?

I'm getting a Bone Mineral Density scan next week. Come on down and we can get one together!

No stress Fracture and unless my doctor doesn’t know how to read x-rays.

Cant pick up on x Ray's sometimes. Can be hairline.

I think MRI shows more than xrays

Stress cracks won’t show up till they start to calcify - a couple weeks. Rest it for now. Then try X-ray again.
