Stress fracture: Stress fractures typically are painful through out activity, including simple walking or standing. There is also swelling overlying the area where the suspected stress fracture may be. This is something i would follow up with a foot/ankle doctor to have an x-ray taken.
A 35-year-old member asked:

How to tell if my ankle has a stress fracture?

Stress Fx: Stress fractures can occur from overuse. Were you hiking or running and then your ankle started to hurt. Do you have pain at a certain location on your ankle? Stress fractures often don't show up on xrays initially. Mri's can pick up stress fractures, but that is an expensive way to make the diagnosis. If you have pain with long walks or running, doesn't bother you otherwise, get it checked.
