1378884 tn?1315509445 In a nutshell, osteoarthritis is wear-and-tear on the joint. It can happen at any age, not just to "old people". It can be brought on by an injury, a congenital deformity, overuse in a sport or job. RA is a malfunction of the immune system in which it mistakes joint tissue, mainly the cartilage, as something that must be attacked and eliminated. This causes the typical swelling, redness, heat, and over time, damage that causes pain and disability.
Avatar n tn Hi Staley, Flatfoot, is a deformity of the foot in which the normal medial longitudinal arch of the foot has been lost. What type of flat foot have you been diagnosed with? Is it a rigid or flexible variety? I think it is flexible flatfoot for you (as per your description), which lacks an arch only when patient is weight bearing, not when non weight bearing or toe-standing.

Avatar n tn There could be a variety of causes for local foot pain from arthritis and gout (have plain xrays of the foot been done) to deformity from diabetic foot disease (get checked for diabetes) to causes for high arches (neuropathy) and swollen toes (psoriasis arthropathy, 'dacylitis') Many of these causes are not neurologically related so you should seek a formal medical opinion on them Good luck
1263295 tn?1269930850 I read your profile, so it's your feet, correct? A lot depends on where in your feet you're having pain. Osteoarthritis of the hindfoot (the bones and joints between your heel and the front of your ankle) is not uncommon. It can be caused by normal wear and tear, or an undiagnosed deformity in the bones. One signal that the problem is in the hindfoot is that the majority of your pain happens when you rotate the foot laterally (side to side, like rolling your ankle).
