I was at my GP today and she suspects Plantar Fasciitis to be the issue with my poor feet so now have referral to podiatrist, yippee! I may get a change of shoes from my Hotter Easy's which is all I have been able to wear for weeks. But while there I asked about the increase in the amount of broken veins noticeable in clusters from about half way down my calves up to my thighs and she said it is a common side effect of RA and other similar diseases. I have only noticed them getting so bad recently but then the old legs have been out a bit more than usual with all the lovely weather we have had. Gentle hugs to any of you out there feeling pain today.
