Stress fracture: Stress fractures are often caused by over use or excessive weight bearing of the problem limb. Excessive jumping, running, heavy lifting and heavy work can all cause stress fractures. Excessive training in sports can be the culprit. Be sure you are living a healthy life style to prevent problems in general.See 1 more doctor answer
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. Chronic (long-term) stress can have real health consequences and should be addressed like any other health concern. Fortunately, research is showing that lifestyle changes and stress-reduction techniques can help people learn ...Read more
8+++ wks, maybe more: Stress fractures of the patella are rare and diagnosis is often delayed by months. Nonoperative treatment involves immobilization and protected weight bearing (ie stay off it). Nonop tx is often unsuccessful and then surgery is the recommended. Healing takes 2+ months, often 3-4. You need to be followed closely. See a knee specialist soon. Good luck!See 1 more doctor answer

Tiny bone breaks: Stess fractures come from repetative overuse of leg and foot muscles, which leads to small cracks in leg/foot bones. Beginning runners are prone to this. Older people with osteoporosis can get stress fractures too. Treatment can be a walking boot, or crutches, or a brace. Pain meds are more like tylenol (acetaminophen) than nsaids like advil or Aleve as they may (or may not) slow down bone repair.
Overloading the bone: Stress fractures often are the result of increasing the amount or intensity of an activity too rapidly. They also can be caused by the impact of an unfamiliar surface (a tennis player who has switched surfaces from a soft clay court to a hard court); improper equipment (imprper shoes); and increased physical stress (a basketball player who has had a substantial increase in playing time).

Stress fracture of fibula? I play college basketball and for 2.5 weeks I've have a pain on the outside lower part of my leg. Hurts to push on, jump, run
Unlikely: The fibula does not bear much weight at all, about one sixth of the amount of the other bone in the leg, the tibia. As such, it is very uncommon to get a "stress fracture" in the fibula. A detailed exam and appropriate studies will likely determine the cause of your pain.
A fracture is a broken bone. As there is cartilage at the end of many bones at the joint, a fracture may also include a break in the cartilage. Fractures and broken bones are the same thing. It seems that many believe that a "fracture" is a lesser injury or an incomplete break in the bone, but this is not correct. Fractures may be displaced or ...Read more
