Are my posterior heel spurs related to my RA and inflammation in my feet?

Experience with posterior heel spurs

Are these heel spurs related to the RA and inflammation in my feet? Looking for any suggestions that might be helpful to manage pain and get back to walking! Thanks

    Hi BeckyKay. Sorry you are having these problems with your feet. For your protection, we cannot give medical advice over the internet and only a doctor can provide a specific diagnosis of what may be causing the spurs. This article compiles input from the community on how RA impacts the feet, including spurs: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/how-does-ra-affect-your-feet/. Many community members have noted getting help from a podiatrist. One of our contributors who has extensive foot deformities writes about her experience here: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/funky-feet/. In addition, this article from our editorial team looks at foot pain and some treatment options: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/symptoms/foot-joints-pain-and-inflamation/. Hoping you find some answers for your issues soon. Best, Richard (RheumatoidArthritis.net Team)
