Relationship? Arthritis in ankle & PF/TTS

Posted by JK1 on 7/08/02 at 07:24 (089278)

I've had PF/TTS for a long time. Now my ankles
are killing me. Very tired, achy (like my feet)
wheight bearing.
Do you think there is a connection here? What
about arthritis?

They could be related in many ways. just having pain with the plantar fascia can change your gait and cause ankle pain. Since this is both feet and ankle I would have an arthritic panel ordered to rule out any auto- immune connection. Has this been done if not get the tests

I had an arthritis test done, a SED rate, one year ago.
Are there other tests?
