Is there any relationship between bone spurs on your feet and rheumatoid arthritis? I've seen it associated with osteoarthritis, but not rheumatoid. I have a large lump on the dorsal part of my right foot, right over my arch. It doesn't hurt unless I wear shoes that press down on it. Additionally, when I press on the back of my heel (and the left side), I get extreme burning pins and needles. This happens just laying in bed; I have to remember to turn my right foot so that the right side is facing the mattress. Is this at all related to RA? Or inflammatory arthritis in general? Or what?
