A member asked:

Had mri results back showed no broken bones which i already knew from xrays but does this mean it's ligaments and tendon damage as it's painful, swelling on and off and also collapsing on side of foot?

MRI should have revealed if there were any torn ligaments or tendons were seen. Follow up with the physician who ordered the MRI.

MRI can show soft tissue injury (ligaments/tendons). It would be helpful to know if your MRI mentioned injury to tendons or ligaments. Most of the time they will show "sprains" of ligaments or tendons which are "micro" tears in the fibers or ligaments or tendons. With the symptoms you are having it is very possible you may have a sprain. You should follow up with your doctor if you are not better.
