pain in the foot, sometimes pain in the toes and fingers

Hello

For more than a year, I have every morning a pain in the left food (middle, underside).
After walking a few minutes, the pain disappears.

In the last 2 weeks, I had several times a pain in some toes respectively in some fingers (joint area).

Is it some form of arthitis or what could it be?

Cheers,

Pierre (Europe)

Arthritis is possible.  You should also consider other podiatric conditions like plantar fasciitis, as well as arthritis.  

Imaging the affected joints and the foot should be considered.  

If there is associated finger pain, blood tests looking for systemic rheumatologic disorders should be done - such as rheumatoid arthritis or lupus.  An ANA level and rheumatoid factor would be a good start.

Discussing the foot pain with a podiatrist and the joint pain with a rheumatologist can be considered.

These options can be discussed with your personal physician.

Followup with your personal physician is essential.
