MRI shows a swollen bone?

I noticed my right ankel swelling about 3 months ago. It was a little painful to walk on the first month. It was swollen more at night than in the morning. I went to the doctor to have it checked out. He did xrays, blood work and sent me to get a sonogram to rule out blood clots, and sent me for an MRI on my ankel. While waiting on the results he put me in a removeable cast. I wore it day and night. After a week the swelling seemed to be a little better. All of the test were negative for broken bones, blood clots ect.... The MRI showed a swollen bone and swollen tissue. I had never heard of a bone swelling. I am in the cast for two more weeks. When I remove the cast in the morning my ankel is only swollen a tiny bit. When I remove it at night to check it is swollen like three months ago......What is going on???

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
