I’ve had probs with my sacroiliac joints and previously been diagnosed a few yrs back with sacroilitis and narrowing and sclerosis of joint.
Recently had mri and has come back ok no inflammation. I’m feeling really fed up because obviously I’m pleased nothing seriously wrong as they thought may be AS but now I’m like well why do I have such horrendous pain and my lower back ceases up in the night and I can’t move??!
It did show some wear snd tear patches of upper cervical spine where I get pain too (I’m 39yrs)
I know with lupus u can just get joint pain without inflammation or joint damage, do u think it’s still joint pain because it surely can’t be just nothing!
My rheum has previously said he has pts with terrible back pain with normal mri.
He’s said in his letter that obviously it’s a good result but is aware that it doesn’t reflect the pain I am having so will discuss the result further when I see him in 4 wks.
It may be just my muscles? I see a rheum physio and she said my back doesn’t move from half way down my back. But i have really specific points of pain when u press on the si joints.
I’m confused and fed up, was just hoping it would show at least something that would explain the pain. I now feel as tho people ie gps are gonna be like well there’s nothing wrong with ur back!
How come there was damage on it a few yrs back but not now. I know it sounds silly and I should be pleased but u know what it’s like it just fuels the gps fire of ‘ well there’s nothing wrong!’
