Pain at 5th metatarsal

    I broke my 5th metatarsal 5 years ago.
    8 months ago I felt it when I hurt it at the gym on a TRX machine but kept going.
    A nurse practitioner tugged an pushed on it and said there was no way it was broken again.
    I guess Covid and my stubbornness has prevented me from seeing a podiatrist. I wore a boot for about 2 weeks straight and iced it. Then I wore a brace for 2 weeks. Did strengthening stuff. Now I have better shoes with wide heel but whenever I wear anything else it hurts. Cant wear tennis shoes to work anymore and wondering what insert would help? Has anyone ever had this? Hubby tried to reset my cuboid bone with no help. I did wear shoes that were too big after the break 5 yrs ago so I think that caused it.
    Peroneal tendonitis seems to be my problem and I am getting very sick of it.
    I ordered a silicone heel wedge so I can put it in other shoes but wondered if anyone had any suggestions.
