Feels like broken 1st metatarsel


After golfing yesterday, I've developed pain in the 1st metatarsel (mostly on the out-side of the foot/bone), with some localized swelling. I'm wondering if this could be a stress fracture of some kind and wondering what to do to treat it??? I'm planning on seeing my PCP tomorrow, but wondered-
Any thoughts? Thanks!

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
