I was diagnoised with RA two & half years ago but wasnt happy with my consultant so changed last April he sent me to see a foot surgeon staight away after seeing my xrays the foot surgeon sent me for MRI scans when I saw him last November for the results he said I needed an operation on my left foot as I have osteonecrosis where the blood supply hadnt got through to my bones & they were damaged. I had the op in March. I still have pain in my feet & cant walk far but he says I have to let the bones recover, should be by Sept.
Does anyone know if RA & Osteonecrosis the same thing or connected??
I have been prescribed steroids, injections Hydroquinine & am now on 15 mg of Methotrexate.
I see my RA consultant in July & will have a few of questions to ask him as no one seems to know what is really wrong with me.
I think this was caused by Amloidopin I took for 10 weeks for high blood pressure,then my feet started burning & with 2 weeks my feet were so swollen I couldnt put my weight on my left foot at all or get a pair of shoes on.
Has anyone any ideas on this??
