Hello. Thank you for your message.

Do you mean, your doctor diagnosed arthritis? Rather than "did arthritis?" Arthritis is inflammation of one or more of your joints. It can cause pain and stiffness in any joint in the body and is common in the small joints of the foot and ankle. Although there is no cure for arthritis, there are many treatment options available to slow the progress of the disease and relieve symptoms.
