The May 5, 2009 MRI report is included in the Rebound records I sent you. I had forgotten that the MRI was of both feet. The impression of the left foot is: “OS naviculare edema consistent with os naviculare syndrome.” Interestingly, that condition was not found in the right foot, yet my symptoms in both feet are generally identical. The report also indicates on the left foot a peroneus longus tendon partial tear. My doctor minimized this finding—I think he said it might have been an artifact.
I do have a positive HLA-B27. This was re-confirmed recently. I occasionally have mid-back pain, but it usually resolves in four or five days after I start doing yoga each morning. Then it won’t come back again for months. Every several months I have some low back pain, but it also goes away after yoga. So, I don’t really have consistent back pain. I’ll get you the records from the rheumatologists.
I took two Aleve twice a day for several weeks. I now take the Aleve only occasionally after the rheumatologist cautioned me about side effects.
