Time: It will stop hurting as it heals. In the meantime be sure your tetanus is up to date (within the last 10 years) and keep the wound clean. Watch for signs of infection- redness, swelling or drainage and take Ibuprofen 600mg every 6 hours for pain. ...Read more

I would think the wearing a great pair of shoe should turn the problem around. I f you suspect a stress fracture, then stay off your foot a while and see if the pain reduces. I would hold off on the MRI and give the tincture of time a chance. ...Read more
