Mri scan of the foot

Common Questions and Answers about Mri scan of the foot


Avatar m tn The spinal cord ends at T12, just before the lumbar spine, so there are no lesions below the thoracic level. Sometimes a lesion will be seen at the very bottom of the spinal cord in the images taken of the lumbar spine, but it's just because the tech's caught the very bottom of the T-spine to be complete. That's usually where the misconception comes in.
Avatar m tn on outside of my right foot, half way between my ankle and toes, i feel a tearing sensation when i bend my foot at certain angles. the pain level increases the farther i extend my foot. please advise what this may be.
Avatar m tn I can lie on my left side as long as I have a pillow between my legs, and even then I need to move my legs every few seconds/minutes (depending on the severity of the pain). I have had CT scan of back, MRI of back, xrays of hip, knee, foot, ultrasound of groin.. all came back normal. This started when I was masturbating and felt a dull pain in my right groin.
Avatar m tn Ater that day, the neurologist came in after reading the MRI. The MRI showed no signs of a stroke and no damage to the brain. The nuerologist simply said he had symptoms of a stroke but the MRI didn't conclusively show anything. He simply said they would treat it as a stroke because he didn;t have any answers as to what was really going on. Lather that night, my dad stated that the pins and needles were getting worse in his hand and feet as well as up his right arm.
Avatar f tn Hi PLEASE HELP I have had a lump on the ball of my foot. My doctor has no idea what it is. It's sore.
Avatar n tn Not sure where you live - I am in the US and I haven't had any problems getting copies of tests, MRI scans etc. Whenever I have an MRI, I am given the disc right then to take to my neuro's office. My neuro is sent the written report of the MRI results. When I see my neuro for follow up, I bring the MRI disc. He looks at it then, and reviews it with me. I only get a copy of the radiologists report if I ask for it. Sorry you are feeling stressed out.
Avatar f tn It has caused me to be out sick a few times so far in the past month. Could the radiologist or md have missed something on the scan? He is calling it inflammation but it feels like something more is going on. What to do????
Avatar n tn Hello, I have been reading the various emails submitted by folks with cuboid stess fracture and I certainly do appreciate the sharing of stories. I have been in pain of the left foot for about a month now, but do not remember when I "hurt" it. I finally went to the foot doctor today (7/8/09) and the doctor took Xrays and found nothing. But, he did locate the "pain" and said it may be a cuboid stress fracture.
Avatar f tn Now everytime I exercise my foot turns blue (on the outer side) and it hurts alot on the outer side. I went for a X-ray , CT scan, MRI but all of them showed nothing. I have visited 2 diffrent Orthopedist and not one of them could figure out what was wrong.

Avatar m tn if you have any numbness or tingling or your legs fall asleep and you have trouble waking them up go immediately and have a mri or ct scan done. You could have a more serious issue such as a nerve compression.
Avatar n tn I get hard muscle knots in the arch of my foot. Like has me in tears pain. From my experience the er will only give u pills & tell u to visit your primary dr asap. Rite now I just got orders for an xray at the hospital & a referal to a pidiotrist. Not sure what to expect :( . Best of luck to you .
Avatar f tn Not sure why you posted on the MS Forum, unless it was your mention of MRI. However, MS is a disease of the central nervous system, which is the brain and spinal cord. Some MSers do have foot problems, but due to demyelinated nerves, and not fractures or marrow edema. This is really not the place to ask, but I see that MedHelp does have an Orthopedic forum, so you might try there. Good luck.
Avatar f tn Your numbness seems to be a neuropathic manifestation. And since there is a history of tingling on the same foot, I would get an MRI of the lumbar spine. I guess thet MRI that you did 4 years ago was an MRI of the lumbar spine. Another concern is Diabetes. Have you been assessed for blood sugar levels?
Avatar f tn also right sided pain and burning sensations in foot and arm . this is ruining my life iv had a ct scan of brain and am scared to death of going to my mri scan next month ..can anybody help me ?
Avatar f tn My recent brain-spine MRI was just over an hour. The power of the unit is important. You can study the types on the net. Most hospitals claim state-of-the-art for all their equipment, leaving patients pretty much in the dark. Even well-known centers can be weak in some areas. If you aren't satisfied with your improvement, learn more and keep looking for better treatment.
Avatar f tn Thank you very much for your question; although it is quite hard for me to give you a precise opinion here without being able to examine you, but I would try to provide you some relevant information about your health concern. It sounds to me like disc prolapse conditions where symptoms may originate due to nerve root pressure, pressure on the spinal cord and pressure on the tail bone (L5/S1).
Avatar m tn hi, my husband aged 36 yrs, had mild numbness on his foot constantly for many days, he had an mri scan done, in that report some thing related to T2 flair images,but the doctor says that it is nowhere related to the numbness in foot, but it should be furthur examined by CT scan, i m just copying the data on the report, and doctor advised to take Neurontin - 300 mg tablets daily is it advisable to take this medicine, and plz let me know whether it is considered as serious disorder There is a sm
Avatar m tn Hi, I had a MRI scan a couple of days ago but no one has really explained to me what has happened, I will be reviewed by the spinal team as an outpatient. I have posted the results below and I would really appreciate if someone could explain in non medical terms what is happening. Here's some background info. I have had a recurring bad back for the past 10 years, but at the side of my back. Usually every six months for a couple of weeks at a time then back to normal.
Avatar f tn June 28 2009 The bone scan showed mild diffuse increased activity in the region of the tarsus and right lateral foot compared with the left. It was demonstrated in the static images in multiple projections. August 3 2007 - MRI There is mild grade I strain of the exterisor digitorum brevis muscle. The is mild contusion w/o fractures of the cuboid and medial aspect of the tafar neck June 15 2007- Probable cortical avulsion fracture involving the tarsal cuboid.
Avatar f tn Had another MRI three weeks ago that showed the same mild plantar fasciitis and now the bone marrow edema in four bones of the foot. The fracture seems to have healed, which is good, but the pain is still here! He is now saying he thinks the pain is from the plantar fasciitis. He told me to take Advil twice a day and stretch and ice my foot again! He did not seem worked up at all by the marrow edema. He said that it is just fatty edema and that some people just have it!
