I have plantar fasciitis & metatarsalgia, but the entire ankle & foot hurts now even non weight bearing. Could MRI show anything?

Possible: Your question as stated is answered with a yes of course. An MRI may be a revealing test for multiple issues in your foot and ankle. BUT, an MRI is not always the magic answer. You need to follow-up with your foot specialist/doctor and tell them of your new issues/symptoms and get an examination to see what, if any further testing is needed. Best wishes. ...Read more

Chronic top of foot pain, MRI negative, dr doesn't seem to know but wants me to do more pt. This hasn't helped and it's costly. Second opinion?

Possible neuritis: There are not many structures on the top of the foot other than skin, fat, tendons, few small muscles ligaments and the underlying joints and bones. Nri's poorly visualize nerves since they are small at the level of the foot. If the pain shoots or radiates or tjhe area tingles when u tap where it hurts it is possibly a nerve problem. Seek another opinion with a foot specials. ...Read more

I have top of foot pain that worsens with exercise. Scheduled soon for mri. Will this test show tendonitis even if it has begun to heal?

I have top of foot pain that worsens with exercise. Scheduled soon for mri. Will this test show tendonitis even if it has begun to heal?

Probably: Mri is excellent for evaluating the tendons of the body. Even mild abnormalities are usually visible. Normally, the tendons look black and have smooth contours. Abnormal tendons may be thick or may have fluid in or around them. This shows up very well on an mri. The MRI also gets a very good look at bones, cartilage and ligaments, so there is a good chance of finding your problem. ...Read more

Chronic top of foot pain following excess standing. Post walking/running pain. Mri neg. For stress fx or tendonitis. No obvious dx. Ideas?

Pain in left foot, balloffoot, top of foot near toes, arch of foot pain. Pain left side of karf. Its been like this for a month, hard to walk. What's this?

Stop Playing around.: Sounds like there's a whole lot going on here. Any one of the areas of pain could be the problem and compensation causing the rest.
Could be soft tissue or bone or both. Your best bet is to have it examined to eliminate the possibilities. My guess is that you will need a cam walker of stabilize the foot for a while. ...Read more
