ALMOST FEELS AS IF THE BONE ALONG THE OUTER EDGE IS FRACTURED BUT HAVE DONE NOTHING TO INJURE IT. WEARING THE SAME SHOES AS USUAL. HAVEN'T JUMPED OR FELL ETC.. HELP!!!
There is such a condition known as a stress fracture where a bone can break without any history of trauma.
Although there are other conditions that may cause pain on the outside of the foot, you need to rule out stress fracture first.
If there is no fracture then your doctor should be able to investigate the other potential sources of your pain.
