Arthritis and Calcium Supplements


I have arthritis in my feet.
I am supposed to be taking a calcium supplement, but everytime I am on it for a few days, my feet hurt really bad.
I go off of it, and I am back to my “everyday” pain from the arthritis.
I go back on it, and the pain increases.
I haven’t found anything that says calcium supplements will aggravate arthritis.
Do you know anything about that?K. Trenor


  1. I have been in a lot of pain and tightness at the back of my heel, when I go down the stairs the pain is unbearable. Will it be necessary to have this lump, which is solid to touch removed by surgery or will it go away on its own
