Hi there, you sound exactly like my husband, he has had 2 knee surgery's and
still is in a lot of pain. Its
really strange. There are days when he has trouble just getting to his feet. Anyway, he got blood work and is positive for gout, so you may have more going on, I've read that gout can occur in any of the joints, not just in the foot because its a form of arthritis, so maybe you should ask for some blood work to rule that in or out.
