Subject: Feet pain question

I don't know for sure if I have RA or not (my blood test said I have a score of 20, and under 14 is negative, apparently). My biggest problem right now is my feet... the pain is on the top inside (if that makes sense) of both feet, but my left in particular the bony part near the arch. Does that sound like an arthitis pain? I'm only 37... this all started a month ago with an agonising knee then it went to my my feet and now every morning I wake up with stiff and painful wrists as well, and I hobble around like an old woman for an hour or two. I have an appt with a rheumy but it's not for a week and I would really like some indication as to whether I have it or not...? I also got swollen nodes in my armpit with my knee and foot when the problem first appeared. All my other blood tests were normal, just the rheumatoid factor test was abonormal. Hope someone can shed some light.

Just to add Soni - make a note of all that is happening with dates etc so you can show your Rhuemie when you see them. Good Luck ;0)

Hi there! This defo does sound familiar to me. I have PA in most of my joints. Mine started off with pain/aching feet. It then was painful and swollen ankles then stiff and painful wrists and fingers on waking. Write a list of everything you want to cover when you go to the Rheumy and hopefully they will be able to help you. Go well X

Ah, thanks for the replies people! I was beginning to think I was the only person not being responded to! I saw a rheumy yesterday and she thinks I have RA and is sending me for an MRI of my foot. I've been having hot baths and leaving my electric blanket on at night and that has meant my mornings aren't as bad as they have been.
