index not defined error when creating foreign key

I am managing mysql 5.6 with phpMyadmin 2.8.1 which are hosted by IPower (web hosting company).

I have created 2 tables and have set them up as InnoDB.

The tables created names are: users and patient_id.

In the patient_id table I have added a column to be used as the foreign key that will be related to the "id" column in the users table.

I have indexed this column in the patient_id table.

When I go into the relationship view of the table and try to setup the relationship , I get "No Index found for the column" even though I have indexed it already!

I have attached screenshots of the database structure and the error message.

Any help will be greatly appreciated! Thanks

I don't have Designer available on phpMyadmin, so I had to draw it in excel en posted it as a picture.

I ended up on creating the tables on a test mysql server and setting up the relationship, then I exported the database and imported it into the production server. Now the tables are related.

Thank you.
