that I did this to my foot:
Fifth Metatarsal Fracture
What is a fifth metatarsal fracture?
The metatarsals are the long bones of the feet. The fifth metatarsal is the outermost foot bone and connects to the little toe. A fracture is a break in a bone.
How does it occur?
A fifth metatarsal fracture can occur several ways and break in several places.
Avulsion fracture: This occurs when the foot or ankle rolls in (an inversion injury). When this happens a tendon that attaches a muscle to the fifth metatarsal can pull off a piece of the bone.
How is it treated?
The treatment depends on the type of fracture you have. There are several ways to treat each type of fracture.
Avulsion fracture: This can be treated by wearing a stiff-soled shoe or a removable cast boot for 4 to 6 weeks. You will usually be on crutches until you can walk without pain.
My guess is that when I go in, they will do an xray and tell me its minor and to keep wearing my Keen’,s be nice to it (I can walk, but I can feel it wiggling around in there…ew, but it actually doesn’t hurt too much) … basically continue status quo.
I’ll keep you posted.
