Re: Arthritis in foot & ankle Need advice
My foot did hurt a lot. The thing that got me to go and get it checked was waking up in the middle of the night feeling like someone was jamming an ice pick in that joint. OUCH! I haven't seen a rheumatologist, but I have been referred. I learned I had rheumatoid factors in my blood. It is probably nothing, but I figured it wouldn't hurt to get checked. It will likely take awhile to see that person but that is okay.
I have been learning a lot about wheat lately. I may see about going wheat-free to see if that helps any. I have some OA in other joints and I'd like to keep my joints as healthy as possible.
My foot is way better since the surgery. In fact I walked in a cancer walk last summer and walked 60 kilometres in two days in Vancouver. I never could have done that before the surgery. :-)
Life is too short to wear tight shoes. ~ May you have happy feet in 2012.
