I have a jones fracture in the fifth metatarsal. In addition to the pain, swelling and bruising I am experiencing as a result of this, the top of my foot is also sensitive to touch, which seems to be separate from the pain I'm experiencing in the outer side of my foot. Is the sensitivity and pain in the top of my foot likely related to the fracture or a sign of a different problem which may have occurred at the time of the fracture?
I fractured my foot 2 weeks ago and after about a week began walking short distances using an aircast.
