Hi Minka it really is a s**t when you feel that you can't do what you want to. Know how you feel! Would it be option to phone GP? May be able to advise you. I hope you start to feel brighter soon xx

Hi minka,

The body building was great fun and gave us all a bit of a lift I'm sure.

I don't know anything about your op, I must have missed something, somewhere along the line, but I'm sorry to hear that you are suffering so much.

I do know something of what you are suffering, because my feet have been the worst bit of my body since day 1 of RA. My toes are often very painful and 2yrs down the line they are rigid and often feel like lumps of lead on the end of my feet. My right ankle has changed in shape with nobbley boney bits aound the ankle bone itself, and my foot points inwards when I walk now, it's always painful and stops me from walking very far.

Recently my feet and hands have been so cold at times and it's difficult to get them warm, but I'm wondering if it is due to this horrible cold weather, so I'll see if they improve when spring finally comes and it's warmer generally.

I think miss is right in suggesting you call, or better still, go and see your GP, perhaps something is not quite right since your op!

I have found taking paracetamol regularly, first thing in the morning and last thing at night before I go to bed particularly, helps a lot.

I also take Diclofenic sometimes, usually when I have pain in lots of joints at the same time. I always take them after food to lessen the chance of it causing any tummy upsets and make sure that I drink plenty of water throughout the day, that way I am less likely to suffer with constipation. My GP told me to stop them as soon as things improve, which I do.

I hope I have been a little bit of help to you and I hope you get yourself sorted out soon.

Sending hugs your way, June x

John, have they checked ur circulation since the op? If not I would get it checked out. Also have u been checked out for diabetes, one is the signs can be hot/ cold feet. Good luck xx

minka profile image

yep had circulation checked at doctors said had good pulse allanha

then they sent me for blood tests ok

so im wondering on that mri it showed disc at l4 l5 bulging but not gross he said

just wondering if this is impinging on the nerve route and that is causing problems now cos i got a bit of ache in lower back last couple of days and maybe walking of that leg a bit has done this.
