I'm a teen female, and I severely fractured my calcaneus (heel) in early March by jumping down 5-7 feet. The fracture went 80%-90% of the way through my heel, and some liquids from my bone marrow seeped into the fracture, so when I got an X-ray soon after the injury, it semed normal. Thinking it was fine, I ran on it. When the pain worsened, I got an MRI, and the doc put me in a cast on April 22. I got it off May 26.
I'm having immense pain, whether I'm walking, resting my foot on a footstool, or lying in bed. I'd almost rather be in the cast. It hurt less that way. When I wake up (if I've gotten any sleep) the pain is crippling, and I can hardly get upstairs to the bottle of Tylenol to take some.
Has anyone else had a similar injury to the heel? Does anyone who's been in a cast have an estimate on how long the pain will last? I'm always on Tylenol, but is there anything else I should try to relieve pain?
