    Hello, what kind do you have? I am doubly blessed with a creaky foot in both camps, I began with an auto-immune in 1997 (which was finally diagnosed as psoriatic in 2006) then osteoarthritis was diagnosed in 2011. My rheumatologist ignores the OA (and me, I haven't seen her now for over two years) and whatever GP I see ignores the psoriatic. At the moment the OA is to the fore thanks to winter but it will be all-change come the spring. DD
