For a year I have suffered excruciating back pain. I told my rheumy and he said that it was from the Lupus and there was nothing he could do about it and pretty much washed his hands of me. I am now barely able to walk so went to see my g.p who ordered an x-ray and I've just had the results. I have no discs left in the last five vertebrae so am basically rubbing bone on bone every time I walk. The vertebrae are also disintegrating. I am so pi**ed off that all this time I was ignored by my rheumy whilst slowly getting worse and worse. I've now been referred back to the rheumy and all I can say is he better have a good explanation as to why he didn't x-ray me in the first place. I am really upset because I've been hoping all along that the pain would go and I could maybe go back to work but that doesn't seem likely now. Just wanted to have a moan and am now off to have a good old sob. Love and hugs to all xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
