Thanks for writing your query
After going through the brief description. The cause most likely is stress fracture
, have you recently started physical exercises/running? For now my advice would be take a break from running for few days (7-10), if you are doing running. Take ibuprofen
to reduce pain and do ice fomentation.
My advice for you would be-
1. Gradually increase the running length and speed preferably on weekly basis and to be followed by ice fomentation.
2. Take balanced diet rich in calcium (1000mg/day) and vitamin (1000 i.u. /day) along with vitaminB12, B6.Vitamin D is available in weekly dose pattern as well as injection, just talk to your local doctor.
Hope this information helps you. If the problem persists see a doctor.
Take care and I shall be glad to answer any further query.
