ankle pain and arthritis

  • By gphillips

    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.

I thought this article on pain would be helpful: In addition I do hope the community can provide you with some feedback and support.
