    How can you tell if it's a stress fracture?

    Hello Bullies,

    I'm having a sharpshooting pain in my lower left leg. It started on Saturday during the 3rd period of an ice hockey game I was playing in (forward, LW).

    This pain is on the Fibular side, which is coincidentally right where a nerve runs (the Peroneal nerve if I'm not mistaken?). I noticed just how much it was bothering me when I was training, especially pivoting on it, loading it with all of my body weight and kicking with it.

    This isn't the first time I've had some pain here before related to hockey, it's the spot where my ice skate's hard boot ends. When my skates loosen slightly during play, it's where all the pressure of the boot ends up when I'm on my inside edge... wish I could explain it better.

    Either way, I sustain a lot of impact in hockey AND in martial arts, so I'm afraid of what it MIGHT be. Inflammation, nerve entrapment or a stress fracture, and I can't tell the difference.

    Recommend seeing a sports medicine specialist anyway?

    If it's that bad, see a doctor. There's no sense in risking further injury.

    Good call, I'm in a therapeutic boot now with a stress fracture.

    Now the question is, is there anything I can do to exercise while I can't use my stupid leg?
