Foot Pain advice

Foot Pain advice

Hello all

Am just back from my 6 monthly lupus clinic. While waiting, I spotted this excellent booklet on the freebies wall rack...because my clinic has given me other Arthritis Research UK booklets which have been VVV helpful (e.g. They do a great booklet of mycophenolate), I wondered if this Foot Pain booklet could be equally helpful...some of you may remember that one of my specialist subjects (πŸ˜‰πŸ˜) is Lupus Feet...over the decades, I've had to get clued up because of my wonderful "complex persistent pattern" 😏 feet probs. Anyway, to my delight, this leaflet does indeed cover most all of our sorts of feet stuff....and mentions SLE several times....there is good solid info about feet conditions, lifestyle management, conservative treatments and prescription meds etc. And it's illustrated with drawings, photos etc

I know Lupus UK also does a good advice leaflet on feet, but possibly due to ARUK being a bigger organisation it also has bigger budgets for these sort of booklets.

HURRAHπŸŒŸπŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘πŸ‘. My goodness: have just been looking through the range of leaflets there...it's fantastic...I've downloaded several: Thanks baba!


Arthritis Research Uk have a lot of very informative leaflets. This is where the leaflet I got on Behcet's came from. I had never heard of it until an old family friend sent me the leaflet. I read it then took it to my GP. After reading it he agreed that my symptoms, with negative blood tests, fit Behcet's. He spoke to my rheumatologist and they are going to look into the possibility of this being what I have. I am hoping that maybe when I go to my appointment in May I will be a step closer to a definite diagnosis.

Good going! Crossing my fingers for you eeyore! ARUK really does have a wonderful archive: so glad it's helping you. Counting on your updates πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€πŸ€


As Barnclown has mentioned it, here is a link to our factsheet 'LUPUS and the Feet' which has some information about helping foot pain towards the end.
