    Hi @Arfer  

    Welcome to the Versus Arthritis forum. 

    You’d like to know whether it’s common to have hot feet with arthritis.  

    Some types of arthritis can cause swelling and inflammation so it’s possible that this contributes to your hot feet. Having said this I can’t find any reference to the causes of hot feet on our main website so this may well not be the case. 

    Perhaps other members of the forum will be are able to shed some light on this; I hope you get some useful feedback. 

    Best Wishes
