Ankle and foot pain

I've have c4-5, c5-6, and c6-7 fused in my neck. I was in a car accident in 1984. Had c4-5 and c6-7 fused in 1987.
Had c5-6 fused in 1998 and plated.

Suffer from chronic pain.

Now I am having left foot pain. I had a mri done and the results read.

1. New focal thickening of the plantar tendon with adjacent edema. This may be due to direct trauma or plantar fasciitis.

2. New thickening and increased signal of the tibial newve with surrounding fluid. This is suspicious for truma or inflammation.

3. New thickening and increased T1 signal in the posterior tibial tendon consistent with tandinitis.

4. Edema of the lateral forefoot without evidence of underlying bony injury.

The pain started in my arch. Now I'm having pain across the front top of my foot where the leg bone and foot attach.
My little toe moves under the toe beside it when I try to bend my foot towards my head at my ankle. The left side of my foot hurts from my leg to my my toes. When I run my fingers across the top of my foot I get sensations that run down into my toes. Sometimes I wake up and my foot is asleep, but it actually feels kind of paralyzed.

I hope I did this right. I'm wondering if you can interrupt the MRI in language I can understand. Could this have anything to do with my neck problems?



  • I am sorry that you are having this pain. I do not like reading posts and not responding once i open it. I have different leg and foot pain or sensations. Mine is from my lumbar issues. I have woken up and my right foot is actually cold and cannot warm on its own. Was worried and called my NS to no avail. Had my chiro appt on that same day and it got warmer on its own after i was adjusted. But i was told my ns's nurse that the problem was probably circulatory and not from my back since all my "normal symptoms" come from my left side not my right side. Sometimes the answers are not readily available. I hope when you finally find out from your physician you can get some answers. Sorry I couldnt be of more help.
