Stress Fracture Symptoms
The primary symptom of a broken bone is pain. The pain often begins toward the end of an activity and resolves with rest. If the injury is not recognized or if the symptoms are ignored, the pain will begin earlier during the exercise and continue even after the activity or exercise is finished. Pain at night is a common complaint. Eventually, the pain will become persistent with minimal activity.
Localized swelling may be occur at the site of injury, and there may be spot tenderness if the area is touched.
