RA pain in feet & purple tinted nail beds in hands
couponer posted:
I don't know if a pediatrist should be seen for my foot pain. I've mentioned a couple of times to the rheum dr that my feet hurt all the time. She didn't say much other than, you have bones in your feet (duh). The feet hurt on the ball & on top where the joints are. Two toes, ones next to the big toe, are red & swollen. The nails have taken on a paleness that the others don't have. Is it time to see a foot dr?

Additionally, I've osteoarthritis in both hands. The finger joints & on ea knuckle of the pointer finger are always swollen & painful. I've noticed that on each finger's nailbed is slightly purple. Is this a cause for concern?

Best to all,
