I'm brand new here, should look around more but searching for answers- went to podiatrist yesterday cause I have big lump in my arch, cant feel any pain in feet. Apparently my right foot has really bad osteoarthritis and is deteriorating. All he said was to come back if it gets swollen or red, and that there is nothing that can be done. My Dr says the same, he says sorry but cant send you to rheumatology cause you have osteoarthritis and that is not an autoimmune disease. No one has said what I can or cannot do, so I keep working (truck driver, using that foot 10 hrs a day) and working out, kettlebells and krav Maga, until my feet give out and I'm wheelchair bound, I guess? I feel like no one cares and no one can help, so add depression to my list of other ailments which include Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (since I was 20) Crohns (just diagnosed) . Ugh.
