Hi Anon,


Welcome to EmpowHER. Navicular stress fractures are uncommon but serious injuries characterized by a chronic midfoot ache.  The cause is a repetitive chronic load to the midfoot often from dynamic sporting-type activities.  A Navicular stress fracture is difficult to diagnose as it may not be seen on a regular x-rays. You might need to see your doctor to get your foot examined and have imaging test done. Hope this was helpful?
