Unhappy fluid in the heel bone

I had no accident here just to let you know.

From my first MRI, now about 16 months later, there is fluid on my right heel bone. Conclusion says this has progressed since first test. No fracture or tendon tear evident. Suggestion of therapy and a sleeping boot at night.

Sound familer to anyone?

Re: fluid in the heel bone

Hi P-
I've just found out that I have PTT and have been reading a lot about tendons, ligaments, etc. .. From what I understand, the synovial fluid around tendons can cause swelling in that area. It doesn't have to indicate a tear, but it shows that it is irritated and can be from something as simple as the overuse of walking around too much. A good orthopedic surgeon would know if a little bit of movement and strengthening of the foot and ankle in therapy would help the situation. I looked at your other postings re: RSD. A neurologist.. or even a very good pain management specialist who deals A LOT with RSD patients would be able to perform the tests that could rule it out. Hope this helps- Sand

Re: fluid in the heel bone

Thanks sunshine

I just started therapy this week. He's using a patch with some medicine on it. Don't know much about it yet. All this stuff is so foreign to me. I can't get a grasp on it all. Guess I'll learn. Seeing the Therapist 3 times a week for a while, then he mentioned the tens unit. O well, have a nice weekend!
