Arthritis and Rheumatism
RA in Feet?
I have been dx`d in RA for 6-7 years now, started to have foot pain 3 years ago. I have had surgery and had nodules removed and bone scraped in the 3rd & 4th metatarsals. That has did well, however the pain now in my heal is unbearable, Dr`s tell me ????? and MRI showed fluid. I have been advised to be basically in bed until this heals. Can you please recommend any test etc that could tell me more?
It is difficult to recommend additional tests other than what you have already had. That said you are always free to get copies of those tests and seek a second opinion on diagnosis and treatment.
