Went to see the rheumatologist for the results of a nuclear bone scan, and was told that it was 'essentially normal'. I asked why essentially? They said there was an area of active inflammation cells in a couple of rib joints in the exact place where I have been experiencing a high level of constant, bruising type pain. The rheumy said they were going to ignore it anyway. I asked her why they were ignoring it when the whole purpose of the scan was to show up if there were any active inflammation cells in my joints, and she said it was because the only thing it could be in the ribs would be costochondritis but that if it was that, it would be in all the ribs. I came away a bit baffled and when I told my GP later that day he said it was a load of rubbish and you could get it in just one rib joint, or it could just be starting and could spread further. But he didn't go on to say he'd do anything about it!!
I was just wondering if anyone here has had anything line this?
