Arthritis and foot pain
hello, my name is alexia, first time I had a pain in my knee was back in 2017, was 24, contact my gp and they said was nothing young and the pain would go soon enough, few weeks later I contact them again send me to physio and nothing was working, so went privately, showed the letter to my physio after I did my scan privately and he said “ it’s nothing but a sprain don’t need to see a specialist “ I felt so bad wouldn’t even move my knee the mri showed swelling and probably arthritis.
eventually I got to see the doctor and he confirmed was arthritis, he’s a lovely doctor and has see me for 2 years now, and because of him in many ways my knee is better and they discovered a tumour which most likely will be removed, I’m now 27.. and this could all have been avoided at 24 I wonder?
my blood test shows some sign of liver damaged probably because of my meds, and now to what I wanted to get to; my foot ( the same side as my knee ) got swollen for no reason eventually Red, my toes hurts, between them to and middle of my foot, the bones hurts, turned red and now it’s purple, for 2 weeks now, called my gp and again “ no appointment or had nothing to do with my arthritis” and I’m really scared this is escalating really quickly and I have no previous pain on my foot. Not like this just normal day to day hurt or when my knee was really bad.
aorry for a long text but hope someone can give me some advice on the foot? I taken pics of the stages too, and made a few small video to keep track of it.
