Forefoot Deformity like RA
« on: May 18, 2014, 04:31:21 PM »
Hi All,
It has been a long time since I have visited this board. My diagnosis seems to change with the seasons and so here I am again. I am feeling quite sure about the Sjogrens dx and my medical history fits very well, but I have serious forefoot deformity. Several foot surgeons have told me it looks and acts exactly like RA. I don't have RA but I do have sensory neuropathy and erosive inflammatory arthritis. I am considering my 3rd surgery on the right foot - Clayton procedure to remove all the metatarsal heads. This will be my final surgery on that foot. Has anyone else had foot deformity? I wish we could figure it out because the same process is starting in my left foot.

Thanks and it is good to be back. I am looking forward to getting re-acquainted with you.
