Hi, I know I asked a few weeks ago about joint pain versus muscle pain, but I'm increasingly concerned about the state of my back. It keeps going into spasm with what feels like the sacroiliac joints grinding and becoming inflamed. Blood tests showed no sign of inflammation however, or RA. Today, I turned by body slightly in standing to speak to someone at the side of me and there was a loud cracking noise from my lower back which shot nerve pain down both legs, which has never gone. My back is truly agony. I was wondering if it's possible to get arthritis (osteo) in that part of your back and if could account for pain? I had a back MRI 3 years ago and it was fine. Is it conceivable that this could have deteriorated that much In three years. Does anyone have these problems? Thanks x
