Hi all. I have not posted here in a long while. I was diagnosed with ra 9 months ago and have been on leflunomide and hyrochloxcloroquine. It's kinda slightly under control. But I have had a bakers cyst on my knee which grew n grew until my rhuemy dr sucked the juice out of my knee and gave me a cortisone injection. Helped for a while but know I have a swollen achilles heel. Which gives me grief after resting. As my knee is better I have got back to my exercise regime just not so heavy. I used to do spin running and kettlebells. I know do swimming pilates and yoga. I read an article that mentioned too much exercise plays up the heel. But it's not too much exercise I don't think. But any advice would be great if anybody else has had the same type of symptoms. I also have bunions on both of my feet and pains in the balls of my feet. Would love to chat to a podiatrist about my feet. Just don't know how to get in contact with one. Either through my rhuemy nurse or general gp or private. That's it. Got it all off my chest. Makes me feel better. Just look forward to hearing any replies about foot management. Thanks to one and all. Xx
