RH factor (to rule out Rhematoid arthritis)
Glucose (to check for diabetes)
Can't remember the name of the test, I think it's nucleur antibodies something - to check for Lupus.
Vitamin B12 (low can cause numbness)
Thyroid (low can cause problems with extremeties too).
It's always important to rule out other things when you're looking at problems with the feet. Apparently a number of systemic problems will make themselves noticed in the feet first.
I will have to get motivated and try this chat thing...might not be able to type messages if it gets really bad!!!Right now it's more of an annoyance than anything, they certainly don't hurt like my feet do.
Anyway, for those of you who are new to foot pain - blood work is something that you may want to make sure to bring up with your doctor if they haven't already done it.
I hope for a Merry Christmas for all of you! Keep your stress to a minimum, keep smiling and don't let the little things get to you...all the best...! :)
