I fell on the side walk about a month ago. The doctors have me crutches and a walking boot. The walking boot doesn't help that much. Is it fractured?

In brief: Occult fractures

Sometimes broken bones do not show up on the first x-ray as cracks in the bone can be very hard to see.
If you are still having significant pain then you may wish to get a second x-ray.
