My foot started hurting during a half marathon on 7th September last year. I have been injured ever since and unable to run. I have finally been diagnosed as having Freiberg's Disease. Apparently it's a rare disease characterised by osteonecrosis of the second metatarsal head. It seems it's usually teenage girls who are affected and is more rare in adults (I'm 40). I am awaiting an MRI, which will provide my consultant with more information regarding how advanced the condition is.
It's a long shot (given that this is apparently a rare disease), however as this is a running site I thought I'd ask if anyone else has this disease or whether they know of anyone who has it (of any age). I mainly would like to know how they manage the foot pain (I am awaiting an orthotic appointment at the hospital) and whether they are able to run.
It is a relief to finally have a diagnosis for my foot pain. I would be grateful for any advice or information anyone can give me. Thank you :)
