... worst. I have the three middle toes of my left foot which will not move, they are stiff and I have little or no feeling in them. Does anyone else suffer with this and if so, is there any hope of it getting any better. It really impedes my walking as it makes me off balance
I was diagnosed at the same time this year. My toes were not without feeling but were so painful to the touch and along with it in my ankles i could hardly walk. There was little success with steroids and anti inflamatory drugs however with the statrt of methotrexate, it sorted that problem.
Hope this helps
I have had psoriasis and it turned into the arthitis over the last few years. Im sorry to hear that for you. Im on various meds that have controlled the psoriasis but now its considered rhuematoid arthritis. I nevre had the pain in my toes but it was more my fingers that were hurting and swollen. They put me on humira, prednisone and methotrexate initially and that really helped the psoriasis. What do they have you on?
Only the second toe on my right foot seems to be affected right now. I found that slight massage helps to ease the pain a little. When I was on prednisone it seemed to help a bit but I have bad mood changes with it, so I don't take it very often anymore. There are some orthopedic shoes out there that can also help to take some of the pressure off, and provide you with better balance. The ones I wear are made by Crocs. Not the most fashionable mind you but they do help lol.
I'm sorry that you are having to go through this. You are not alone and I hope this helps a little
