Do you know what sort of arthritis it is? My mother had rheumatoid arthritis (auto-immune condition). She was advised to lose weight (to reduce the strain on the joints) and prescribed anti-inflammatories plus other drugs to stop the anti-inflammatories damaging her stomach lining. Osteoarthritis is caused by wear and tear on the joints.
I have HMS sobhave dislocated or subluxed many joints.
A surgeon had numerous attempts to realign the tracking of my knee caps, but this has made matters much worse!
I was told to try and keep my leg muscles as strong as possible to support the joints and stabilize them ….. I do have to use braces sometimes or crutches when really bad.

I have terrible bunions, on my big toes, and also one on my little toe, which I believe is called a tailors bunions. I am not a tailor. I hate my feet they are so ugly but don’t think I could go down the road of having surgery. I am forced to wear wide old lady shoes instead That’s wide shoes, I am not a wide lady!

Thanks for all your replies guys!
Quick update… So on further research, pompholyx isn’t contagious so shouldn’t spread from hands to feet. It is very itchy and is a form of eczema. So not that. Possibly hand, foot and mouth, a variation of varicella (chicken pox). No cure, just have to ride it out. Itchy as chicken pox, blisters look typ…[Read more]
There’s not necessarily a cause, I gather. For me, it was a particular pair of Docs, I live in them!
4 weeks off work?! I mean, I’d love it, but I’d rather not! Did the heat of the hairdryer not drive you nuts?
So, not corns then! Was woken up yesterday being driven nuts with an extremely itchy toe. Several bubbles have appeared on the side of a toe. There are dots/bubbles on the sole of the same foot. I had this years ago on my hands and the doctor gave me cortisone cream. I’ll see if I can get something from the chemist, zero chance of getting to a d…[Read more]
