    My calf has been fucked up for like 4 weeks now. I am getting close to that time for a doctors appointment.

    Will I know if I have a stress fracture i.e. the pain would be unbearable?

    just seems like 4 weeks is a long ass time to still be recovering from a strain.

    Even x-rays have trouble picking up a stress fracture.

    Pretty sure you would need an MRI to be certain.
