Arthritis in foot

I have had severe arthritis in my right foot for over 4 years now. In 2006, I had cortisone shots and they worked for awhile. Now I just use trameel. It is a prescription salve that is great. My podiatrist prescribed it for me.

I have had a severe case of rheumatoid arthritis for 2 years
now, and the first symptom I had was pain in my feet upon standing. The pain went away after about 5 minutes. This
went on for 3 and a half years before an onslot of all the
other symptoms. I have had ostio arthritis for about 15 years.
When I hear of foot pain, I think of RA.
