Nope what? I didn't say anything about cellulitis. I didn't even know what it was before this thread. Just seen too many family practice and ER docs fall back on stress fracture if any hs runner complains of some pain.
And runners love to say they have stress fractures because that's perceived as a *real* injury. Just look at this board. Tons of threads with "Oh, my foot hurts. Can it be a stress fracture? (please say yes...)". So everybody's happy with this diagnosis.
Stress fractures can only reliably be found with MRI. And that must be done at least a week after it happened.[/quote]
Agreed re the so called "stress facture". So where did those reports come from, saying the toe was a fracture? You think they made them themselves?[/quote]
Who said anything about it being a "stress" fracture? I thought it was only discussed as a "fracture."
