JOINT SPURS

Posted by STEPHANIE R. on 2/07/05 at 19:17 (168718)

I'M A 34 YEAR OLD WOMAN HAVING PAIN OF THE THEMETATARSO-PHALANGEAL JOINTS. IT FEELS AS IF I'M BEING STUCK WITH NEEDLES AND THE BALLS OF MY FEET ARE SORE. MY HUSBAND THINKS IT IS BONE SPURS IN MY JOINTS. I DO HAVE FLAT FEET. DO YOU THINK IT COULD BE RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS OR BONE SPURS? PLEASE RESPOND THANK YOU!
