Cardiologist 's  Response
Hello,

Your symptoms could be related to chronic trauma. I recommend checking uric acid plasma levels and inflammation tests (complete blood count, PCR, ESR, calcium and vitamin D plasma levels). In the meantime, I would recommend using orthopedic shoes, which you can buy in the pharmacy.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Ilir Sharka, Cardiologist
