5th metarsal stress fracture

diagnosed with stress fracture of 5th metarasal in both feet. Aqua therapy reccommended by rheumatoligist (I have RA.) I have increased pain in Left foot at fracture site after several sessions. Should I continue therapy? Can this do further damage? (Note: right foot is considered Jones Fracture, Left foot is supposedly likely to heal properly). Please advise. Thanks, M. Levine
