Can it really be oa? It started in my big toe. I had a bunion op 20 years ago. Had another one, same foot, in January. Surgeon debribed the joint too as I had oa in it. Surgery pain has gone but the oa pain is back!
Meanwhile, since last summer the pain in my wrists has got worse and worse. Rheumatologist says its oa too. And the occasional shooting pain I get in my ankle, which has recently developed into the familiar deep ache, is also oa(!) Really?? And I have plantar facilitis in both heels. Oh and, oa in the other big toe.
Can I really have oa in all these joints? Or is something else going on? (Rheumatologist has now referred me to an ortho surgeon for my wrists).
Thank you for any advice.
