I have extreme pain along my foot (the inside) up to my ankle. It has gotten more intense with time. They did the MRI to see if I tore ligaments or tendons. They said nothing is toren and that the RSD is spreading up my leg. So I'm not sure if this pain is from the fluid build up or the RSD, therefore I'm very confused. I was told to follow up with a new DPM and have an appt. this week with a new female doctor. Can having the fluid built up there cause intense pain to the point you can't walk? Is there anything I can do to reduce the fluid? Can this be a serious problem or is it nothing to worry about? I was told the fluid is along the large bone going to the big toe and between the large and small bone also.
I also found out that when the pain management doctor does the spinal cord stimulator placement he has changed his mind, he is placing 2 leads rather then 1 which was his inital plan. This has been 6 1/2 months or torture for me and I'm so ready to be free of pain.
Again thanks for your help.
