    I hurt my foot playing football the other day.

    I landed almost on the slide of my foot (but not quite). My ankle did not roll in fact my foot bent the other way.

    I hear a crack.

    In the past I have turf toe, and I have turf toe in my little toe (although being a little toe it hardly hurts).

    I have had a xray. I have a fracture in my fifth metatarsel.

    The X-Ray nurse wasn't that fussed and sent me home with a shoe / not a boot. She didnt seem to have heard that different metatarsel heal at different speeds. I have a phone appointment with xray - foot idealist on Monday.

    I had 2 xrays this one isnt great. Its more from the side.

    there appears to be 2 crack, but on the other image there was only 1. I never got a picture.

    Is this a jones fracture or is it in zone3.

    Im two days later, there is basically no pain unless I stand on it. I'm not sure it was that painful at the time, but the noise was horrible and I went into a bit of shock. I have not put weight on it in 3 days.

    Thanks Roger

    Ok so I spoke to a nurse from Xray again. A consultant had looked at x-rays.

    she used the word jones fracture, and mentioned lack of blood supply, non-union possibility.

    But still not recommend a boot, (which I asked about). All I've got is one of those hard soled shoes.

    Does this seem right ?

    Its a Jone fracture.
    As to recommendation re boot etc, get advice from a podiatrist or orthopaedic surgeon

    "As to recommendation re boot etc, get advice from a podiatrist or orthopaedic surgeon"

    Well presumably I have and they dont recommend one.
    Can a Jones Fracture not require a boot ?
