Jones Fracture

A few years ago I broke the fifth metatarsal of my left foot, otherwise known as a Jones Fracture.  I tripped over a bag in my apartment!  Doh!  I was in a cast and on crutches for two months.

Lately it's been hurting me a lot but I don't have health care yet to get it checked out. 

Right before it started bothering me again, I had just started running.  Now I don't run, not until it's much better or I can get a doctor to look at it.  But I have been biking a lot to stay in shape, in the hopes that I will run again soon.  

Anybody have any good broken foot stories or good advice, or need advice?  Share!

Once you have broken a bone in the foot it takes up to a year to fully heal and it can in some cases not fully heal. It can also more easily break again.
