In brief: Xrays/MRI

Stress fractures can be diagnosed with x-rays.
At times the fracture does not show up on an x-ray and an MRI is required to make the diagnosis. The best treatment is avoiding the activity which caused the fracture.

In brief: Pain? xray!

Stress fractures can occur without major injury.
Persistent foot pain can be as simple as a strain or as bad as a stress fracture. If conservative treatment does not work then strongly consider seeing a podiatrist, who is a trained expert in all problems foot related!
