Hi, I'm new here. I woke up with excruciating right foot pain about six weeks ago, and two weeks ago, my left foot joined in with the same intensity. It's much worse when I wake up, but doesn't really get more bearable until late afternoon, if at all. I can only wear a couple of pairs of (very sensible) shoes. Even walking from my office to the loo is incredibly painful!
My GP referred me for bloods and an xray this week, and the xray isn't yet back. However, the only relevant blood result is CRP which is absolutely fine. There's no mention of RF on the printout. I really don't want to have RA, but I do want to know how to stop my feet hurting so much. I'm 49 and not overweight, generally fairly fit except for low B12 and vit D, both of which are treated. Anyone got any ideas? I'm due to go back to the GP in a couple of weeks when the xray is in.
