My earlier post didn't send. A bursitis would have show up on the MRI. Alot of times you can get a herniation in the fat pad and this elmiminates the protection over the heel bone. The periostium of the bone can get inflamed and be very painful. When this is the case,sometimes ridgid plastic heel cups will hold the fat pad under the heel and help relieve the pain. A low density x-ray will sometimes will show a thickenin in the soft tissue and give you some idea of what is going on or if there are changes in the bone. Dr. B.
