Went to my primary doctor and he said i have Plantar Fasciitis in my feet.. He said it's from standing alot was the main reason. I stand alot for my job (a server). He referred me to a podiatrist and have x-rays on my feet. I went and saw one this morning and she said I have Arthritis in my right foot. The top of my foot feels like alot of heat and the back of my calf hurts. She told me a medical term and told me i have to go physical therapy and did'mt put 2 and 2 together. The physical therapy referral paper says i have Archilles Tendonitis. So i have both Tendinitis AND Arthritis in my foot!!!! WOWAnswer Question

Tendonitis is inflammation where the tendon connects to the bone. Arthritis is an autoimmune disease that results in inflammation of the joints. Both can be very painful.

The difference is that tendinitis is the inflammation of Tendons while Arthritis is the inflammation of one or more joints. See also DePuy Pinnacle Recall
