I have been told I have palindromic arthritis . I started getting awful pain in my foot 2 yrs ago and some throbbing in fingers ... then about 2 months ago the flare up in my foot didn't go , it started swelling and hurting . I saw a rheumatologist and he gave me a steroid injection which relieved my symptoms for about a week . I'm still in pain and also get throbbing in my groin . I have had 3 attacks of costochondritas inflammation of the rib cage . I'm due to see the consultant again in 2 weeks . Anyone else had the same ?
