stress fracture?

Posted by Paula on 9/15/00 at 19:00 (028325)

just saw another orthopedic doc. he squeezed heel really hard. i screamed. he kept squeezing, and smiling. i grabbed his knee and pounded on it while still screaming. he squeexed even harder. that night area was swollen and blue. still has not recuperated. altho i have had bad pf and sprained ankle, have not had pain on sides of heel before he did this;. now that pain is worse than the others, even four days later. did that clown fracture my heel while testing to see if it was fractured?

What was he looking for. A very slow and gentle lateral and medial push will tell the story. Have you had an MRI done. This is a standard in diagnosing stress fracture of the heel. So what did he say after the examination.

he said he had to do that to me to see if it was a stress fracture. it was anything but gentle.
