Hello all- I have always 'had problems' with my knees (Osgood Slatters as a teen) especially with the damp weather. For a couple of years I have had pain and a little swelling with my forefinger frst knuckle . Six months ago I started getting a terrible sharp pain in my foot just below the second toe. The pain spread to the toe, second joint which aches when I walk/ when I don't walk/ when it's touched. For a couple of months now I have excruciating pain in feet on rising in the morning, on rising after sitting and siffness of the toes where the painful one is after a lot of housework type walking/standing.Phew............sorry if I'm boring you!
In addition, i have two painful hips in the bum area! and each hip at the side gets painful if I lie on it- oops and I forgot the painin the back which literally takes my breath away sometimes..............any ideas? Am I an RA candidate? Or OA? I did the R factor etc bloods last week and am waiting for results. Thanks.
