Arthritis and Rheumatism

RA in Feet?

10/28/2009

Question:

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?

Answer:

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.
