Broken Foot ?

I've been putting something off for over two months now. A trip to the doctor's office.

I've been experiencing continuous discomfort with my right foot. The top of my right foot. I'd describe it as mostly mild discomfort and tenderness to occasional excruciation.

Common sense would say to back off on the running. But, until now I have not.

My wife (tired of hearing me complain?) looked up my symptoms ... looks like a classic metatarsal stress fracture.

Of course, after hearing that I may have a broken foot, it hurts 10 times more than it used to.
