Stress Fracture Question

Hey ladies,

I have a question for any of you who have had a stress fracture. I have one in my heel, and have finally come to the realization that I need to stop any impact-type exercise. However, I'm trying to figure out if it's worth going to the doctors now or if I should wait to see if this helps. From what I can tell from looking online, it seems like the doctor is just going to tell me to stay off it, and they can't do much else for it (i.e. doubtful I'd get a cast or crutches or anything like that).

If anyone had one of these in the past and saw a doctor, what did they have you do? I'm definitely thinking I'd have to go if I stay off it for a couple weeks and it's not any better, but I'm not sure if it's worth going now.


PS. I'm sooo bummed by this. I feel like I was on such a good track and this is such a set-back!
