do you have pain in any other joints like the knee or shoulder joint?
is there any swelling of the joints of the foot?
well in that case this does not sound like arthritis but more like a ligament or tendon pain
arthritis usually begins with pain in the big joints like the knee or shoulder joint
what should i do with it.
some forms of arthritis like gout starts in the foot but usually there is swelling and tenderness of the joints
in the absense of these symptoms, tendon or ligament injury is more likely rather than arthritis
treatment for such pains is usually with binders and physiotherapy
binders like crepe bandage or specialized foot splints can be used
foot exercises can also be advised which will help to heal
but you need to see your doctor first
your doctor needs to examine the foot to determine the cause of the pain
tests like blood tests are needed to rule out arthritis
MRI can also be done of the foot if your doctor wants to find the point of injury
your doctor can also advise you on the best types of splints to use and also the appropriate exercises
so see your doctor for this
it is best to see an Orthopedics doctor who are the appropriate specialists for this
ask about arthritis and about tendon and ligament injuries
ask about doing blood tests for arthritis and also whether an MRI is necessary
also ask about foot binders and physiotherapy
this will help you get an informed discussion and help you to get the best care
these steps will help you find a solution for your pain
