ankle pain and arthritis

Is there anyone out there experiencing severe ankle pain with the RA? I have excruciating pain in my right ankle at times with severe swelling. At times I have to even use a cane. It is interfering with my job as a teacher.

  1. gphillips,
    Sorry to hear you are experiencing this ankle pain and glad you reached out for some support. While any RA pain can be difficult, pain while trying to work/teach is most especially challenging. I thought this article on pain would be helpful: In addition I do hope the community can provide you with some feedback and support.
