well if the pain isn't elsewhere e.g. hands, it's not likely to be RA... however the "walking on bags of glass" is exactly how my RA feet felt (was also preceeded by bouts of plantar fasciitis). GP will likely check for systemic inflammation (ESR, CRP, RF, maybe anti-CCP). You may be sent for scans of your feet. Good luck, I hope it gets sorted ASAP... it's a horrible feeling and very immobilising :-(

My wrists do hurt but I usually put that down to my job...I'm at a keyboard a LOT.

Thanks for the input ShitMagnet....or can I call you Shitty? grin

Could it be tendonitis? Are you particularly active/sporty?

It doesn't sound like tendinitis - all over both feet sound like something more systemic like inflammation, arthritis, etc.

Sorry but that's how my athritis started

Off to gp with you, hope it's nothing x

Korma how debilitating is arthritis? My sister has it too...

Well mine has been very debilitating

I've gone from very active to pretty much unable to walk more than a few steps , can't hold a cup, chop a vegetable etc

However, the consultant said I am a very severe case

Lots of people are only slightly affected, there is lots of support and threads on here, have a look through for more info

Gp is first step though, good luck x

Go and see a Podiatrist, they should be able to pin it down and refer you on if necessary.

I can't afford a private podiatrist...I'll have to see the GP.

How about asking to be referred to the NHS Pod as well as asking for bloods to be taken.
BTW it could be plantar fasciiitis, it can cause whole foot pain and inflammation. Frequently recurs and can feel different each time. This is still the most likely cause I'm afraid.
