Hello all just wondered if anyone had any experience of tibial stress fractures?
Was diagnosed with left leg multi level stress fracture in mid tibia and below the knee after x-ray and mri. Got both the scans as it presented as a painless lump so needed to rule out anything nastier, I had no symptoms or idea as to how I had picked it up. I had started couch to 5k after putting on a hell of a lot of weight so have put it down to that. The real pain only really started a couple of weeks into getting the boot on mainly at night and when I was weightbearing.
Put in an airboot for 6 weeks consultant then recommended trying to get rid of the boot which I did over the next couple of weeks but I still have pain now just from standing, short amounts of walking, don't feel like it's healed or like I'm even close to getting back to normal around 14 weeks after diagnosis
On the side of that im getting similar pain in my other leg now right in the same spot mid tibia, no lump so I'm hoping that's maybe just because I'm walking a bit funny and it's taking some extra weight.
Anyone had the pain last this long? Anyone had bother even doing very little walking, weightbearing at all actually?
