I tried running about the equivalent of a marathon without training for it. I am athletic, but that is another beast to deal with. I couldn’t even run much more than half of it.
I have 2 stress fractures in my feet. One in each. One near my left ankle bone and the other is on my right and is likely a metatarsal. I didn’t have any X-rays to prove it. You just kinda know sometimes. I have gone over 2 months without running or serious sports and it’s still not healed up. I was working some and maybe this slowed the healing, as I was on my feet and lifting some stuff now and then.
I’ve drank more milk than usual, taken some calcium supplements, actually laid off pop, which science has proven to contribute towards fractures later in life. Caffeine also leaches calcium.
I am 29. Have no insurance. Wanted to try a PEMF device(bone-growth stimulator), but not enough money. Is there a place I could rent one??
Have crutches at home, haven’t used them much.
