I wonder what problems other people have with their feet. I developed bunions at about the same time as I was diagnosed with RA, five years ago. I am on Leflunomide (DMARD) and Golimulab (biologic) injection. My rheumatologist dismisses my bunions as if they are unrelated to RA, but I had no sign of them before and was unaware they were developing gradually, so I'm sure they are related to RA. I can no longer bend my big toes. I find buying shoes that are and remain comfortable difficult. Since ditching my sandals a couple of weeks ago and returning to shoes and trainers, my feet feel as if someone has hit them with a rod, across the top from the bunions sites. I do keep active and walk daily. I am generally fairly unrestricted physically as the treatment described, which I have been on for the past 3 years, (I have had RA for 5 years) has been effective. I am reluctant to take painkillers as I feel I am already taking medication which has side effects which are not fully known and do not really want more drugs in my body for as long as I can avoid it.
