I am new, just joined today.

I have all spine MRI's, XRays, CT scan, etc.. Have been given different diagnosis from different doctors but none have been able or willing to manage the huge amount of pain I'm in. The latest diagnosis was from orthopedic surgeon who says it is al in my joints and even though my images show all of the problems I mentioned above. I left a few things out so I should mention anklosing spondylotitis, sciatica, tail bone pain, and others. I would like to know if anyone else has been dealing with so many different diagnosis, all of which may be correct, and how to tell which one is attributing most to your pain.
