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.


^this

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."
