Hey guys, haven't been on in quite some time. Switched to Remicade and doing fine..except for my right ankle.

Went to Orthopedic Surgeon today, who told me I've got Synovial Impingement Syndrome, got a cortisone injection into the ankle..but a little freaked about the pain it causes and what future treatment will be.

Anyone experienced this? What was your method of treatment? I've done the physical therapy route already.

Steriod injections every couple months. I go to a foot dr, I think he does it better than the rhuemy. I time them for vacation.

My left foot subtalor joint was surgically fused. Synovitis, too.
Yahoo has an ankle sugery group if you are thinking about surgery you may get some advice there. Thats where I heard about scooter that you kneel on. rented one, wish I had purchased it!
Use search option (for past ankle threads) or personal message me if you want.
