Metatarsal Stress Reaction
Stress affects most people in some way. Acute (sudden, short-term) stress leads to rapid changes throughout the body. Almost all body systems (the heart and blood vessels, immune system, lungs, digestive system, sensory organs, and brain) gear up to meet perceived danger. These stress responses could prove beneficial in a critical, life-or-death situation. Over time, however, repeated stressful situations put a strain on the body that may contribute to physical and psychological problems.

I was diagnosed w a stress reaction for medial shin pain. I don't think it's the right diagnosis. What are the diff btwn stress fracture and reaction?
Fracture vs. Edema: With a stress fracture, an actual fracture line (crack in the bone) can be seen on an x-ray or MRI. A stress reaction means bone marrow edema (swelling of the inner part of the bone) can be seen on an MRI but no fracture line. Stress reaction is a "precursor" to a stress fracture, is less serious & often has a shorter recovery period. If I can help, join my team- www. Healthtap. Com/dr-clarkeholmes ...Read more

Inflammation: The bone marrow usually has a consistent appearance on an MRI or ct scan. A marrow stress reaction in conjunction with sacroilitis basically means that as you look at the appearance of the marrow as you get close to the sacroiliac joints, it becomes much denser. This is usually associated with an inflammatory and/or arthritic problem in your SI joints. Discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

Numbness and tingling/burning in two toes. Had a stress reaction in foot and wearing a boot. Father & grandmother have neuropathy (unknown cause).

The altered kinetics are probably causing your numbness or the boot itself. An EMG will help you get the diagnosis. The same is true for your father &grandmother. Most causes of neuropathy can be determined w/a Neuro eval & EMG. ...Read more
