Duplicating footnotes when importing from word

I'm having some issues placing a word document with existing footnotes into InDesign. For some reason, InDesign is duplicating the footnotes (for example, you can see in the image that instead of footnote "1" it's footnote "1 1" and instead of "2" it's "2 2"). This only happens when I try to place a word document that I've compiled from Scrivenener (i.e., it doesn't happen with text I write in word), so I can tell it has something to do with the set-up of the word document itself when it's compiled from Scrivener, but I can't figure out what that is. Any help would be much appreciated! I have over 2,000 footnotes so I can't afford to fix all of them manually.

Open the file in Word and save it as doc instead as docx and import that.

Thanks for the suggestion. I tried saving it as a doc and it didn't make a difference.
