Fluid in Metatarsophalangeal Joint

Posted by SteveWG on 4/03/03 at 08:32 (115266)

Results form my MRI and bone scan note 'Essentially negative MR of the right foot. Mininal amount of fluid noted in the region of the metatarsophalangeal joint.' Left foot, 'Small amount of fluid in the ankle joint which is slightly asymmmetric from the opposite side as well as a small amount of nonspecific fluid in the first metatarsophalangeal joint, otherwise negative MR of the foot.'
There is a note that the exam was not specifically tailored to the ankle.
Any thoughts that this fluid could be the cause of my bilateral foot pain? I am still experiencing burning and pain along the bottom of both feet. Especially in the ball and heel areas. Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated.

The conclusion of my bone scan, ' Mild activity in the region of the left ankle with question of minimally increased but symmetric activity in the mid feet bilaterally. Otherwise, negative bone scan of the feet and ankle region.'
