Around 2 years ago I started to get pain along the top of my right foot roughly below my big and second toes. There wasn't any specific injury that I remember happening- it just started hurting. It also became swollen along the top of my foot where the pain was. I went to my GP and they told me it was a tendon and that it would heal in 6 weeks. Went back after 6 weeks as it was still bad. Saw many different GPs who told me that it was tendons or ligaments but there was no change. They sent me for an X-ray but that came back normal. A year after that I was finally refered to an orthopedic specialist. They sent me for an mri. 8 months later they told me that the mri was clear and that they were sending back to my GP. So over 2 years has past and I have been in unable to do normal things like going shopping because it hurts and swells up.
I now have no idea what to do next or what it could be if the mri was normal. I would appreciate any help I could have because I'm going away to university in around 6 weeks and I don't know what to do!:confused:
Thanks
Esther
