Hi, I have nodules on big toe joints, knife like pains in ankles and my feet feel like painful hot lead bricks in bed at night. I did show my busy GP the nodules when I was seeing him about other things and asked if it was RA. He replied 'yes'. End of discussion. I am 71, maybe he puts it down to aging. I am just about coping using dietary changes, massage and exercise but I am afraid this will get worse. I would appreciate a little or big push if it is necessary. Thank you.
