I was wondering if an orthopaedic doctor could help you. You may benefit from surgery, or a walker or devices that help you get around. In any case, you sound like you do need help to keep mobile and make your appointments!

Do you find heating pads useful for your feet? My RA started in my feet too, and they really complain when they get cold. The only thing comfy on them are my wool socks and crochet slippers. Shoes are awful. It really is hard to get around with these painful feet. I sympathize with your situation.
