Constant pain on toe after 5 months

Posted , 3 users are following.

Hi- While playing soccer, i clashed into the heel of my friends studs and that hit my upper part of the foot. This happened 5 months ago. I immediately started the R.I.C.E treatment for a week and the swelling reduced but the pain never went away. As a precaution, i went to the doctor and the X-rays showed no fracture. So i started using comfortable shoes for the last 4 months and till now if i walk without shoes i have a pain, when i start running or any activity on it i still have a strong pain shooting from my toe.

When i rest it and walk may be less than 2 miles a day, i am fine. But i want to start running and get back to normal as its been close to 5 month, since i was running or playing any physical sports.

Should i go the doctor to get an MRI ? Is my foot broken and the doc missed it ? Or should i rest it more and start exercises again ? Please help me out of my misery. I am slowly dying within and cant help and put this pain to rest.

    Oh yes, go to an orthopedic surgeon! Bet a stress fracture or tendon issue was missed. That is not normal!! If you can fine a foot and ankle specialist that wouldbe better!!

    I vote for a second opinion.  Which might lead to another x-ray and/or MRI.  I've learned that sometimes stress fractures may not show up on x-ray or may be hard to detect.  If you tore something, an x-ray won't show it.  After this much time, I'd either go back to the original doctor or go to another one.  Time for some answers and a plan to get you back on the soccer field.  Good luck!
