Does Anyone Have Experience With RA Foot Problems?

Does Anyone Have Experience With RA Foot Problems?

I have begun developing RA nodules on my toes and I always have pain when walking. Hoping someone has advice for the long term i.e. braces, shoes, techniques. Warm soaks help for a bit, but nothing ever really helps. Taking Humira now and will have 5th injection this week. The injections have helped in other areas, but not my feet. Thank you.

My feet are a hot mess. I keep moving and give them a break when needed. Standing in one place is very hard. I wear orthopedic shoes and have inserts. I was able to find some somewhat stylish shoes so I am pretty happy with that. Foot pain can be miserable for anyone.

Hi Rachel,
I too have the same and have found that Sketchers shoes really help as they are padded plus expand if your feet do without having the feeling of them being trapped (they can swell without cutting off blood circulation), also i use heated bean cushions to put over my feet when pain is extreme as i find heat can help with the pain . Hope this helps sending gentle hugs Ur way xxx

Gerbyme sorry you’re having trouble with ur feet. Put some ice on ur feet for 10-15 mins and role ur feet on a ice cold bottle 10-15 mins. You need to see a podiatrist so he/she can get you some shoes. I got me some Sketchers with memory foam. They are comfy.💕
