its 13 months from i was diagnosed with RA, i started mxt last feb.putting aside all the other pain i went through, my two big toes have remained a mystery to me. i blamed it on chill blains because i had to stand for ages waiting on the bus in that bleak weather. this year its made a hasty return as of 3 weeks ago (same time i stopped mxt), ive not been exposed to bad weather.
i have to stress my symptoms: two big toes swollen and hot, agony to stand on, sore to touch, and heat doesnt help.im now walking on wrong side of foot and thats causing me bother
so ive been talking about it to understanding people and theyve all asked me "are you sure its not gout?"
so i googled it tonight and it all makes sense that thats what it is, but now i dont know how to put this across to my gp, i get awful nervous and blabber lots and come away beating myself up?
PS off mxt so hopefully come summertime me and my partner can try for baby
