    Arthritis in foot
    ffjjb posted:
    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.

    ffjjb, that is very good to know as i have arthritis in my left foot and apparently other parts of my body and i will not take coristone/steriods. i will be sure to ask about Trameel when i see my new Rheumatist in January.
    theshowman replied to kathykatt's response:
    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.
