    I saw Dr. Howard in Jackson, WY. I had foot pain, and after an x-ray, he diagnosed me with a broken sesamoid. He wrapped my foot and told me to wrap it for 6 weeks, and to take ibuprofen. After 6 weeks, the foot still hurt. I went to see an orthopedic doctor in town who looked at my posture, my walk, and my stance. She said my bunion was causing pain, along with flat feet and weak ankles. Said x-ray didn't look like a fracture. Gave me appropriate shoe inserts. Pain went away, no pain since.
