I've had joint Pain in my toes this week again. I know osteoarthritis affects the joints in the big toes of the feet, but can it affect the smaller toes as,well? Ice been feeling it most of the week this week including today. Icebeen taking my shoes off in the car all week and driving home barefoot from work everyday. Could I also be getting rheumatoid arthritis thats starting in my feet first? RA runs in my family on both my mom's and dad's side of the family. I'm noticing quite a few changes since I've been dealing with arthritis Pain. I don't like it one bit. I try to find the most comfortable shoes for my feet now that I'm dealing with arthritis pain in my feet. Some days it hurts to just be standing for a short period of time. I've been waring skechers the seem to help some but not enough. I'monly in my 40 and some days I feel like in in my 70s damn this disease . What do you do when your feet get to this point? Arthritis is dictating my life and it'll have my mobility be for I know it. One of my fears has always been having to start using a wheelchair. Who with OA has had to do that?
