Pain and Swelling in my foot

Since May of 2002, I have had pain and swelling in
my right foot. I was walking everyday and one day I got
pain in the top of my left foot. I started limping
because it was so painful. I have had a Chiropractor
"work" on it -- it did get a little better. I have
had other therapy -- it always gets a little better,
but it starts swelling and hurting again. I have had
a bone scan on it and all they can tell me is that I
have some "activity" in a couple of places in my foot.
I had the IontoPatch which is great for awhile, but
the pain and swelling always comes back. Now my
regular doctor says it could be arthritis. I feel
more or less that they are telling me I have to live
with this pain. My podiatrist wants to give me a shot
of Cortizone -- but I am a Type II Diabetic and
Cortizone does a number on my sugar levels. I want more
tests done, but no one seems to want to do anymore
testing. I would really love some answers from someone,
anyone???? HELP!!!
