Iv been diagnosed with spine degeneration and arthritus in whole of spine. I have been told that the arthritus i have is osto, however that may be true in some parts but i feel there is some imflammotory arthritus going on as i have episodes of feeling like i am getting flu, feel cold then hot, falling in and out of sleep, can not eat, at this time the pain in my neck and shoulders is extreme. The problem i am having is that when i have bloods done there are no raised inflammatory markers. Is there a trype of inflammatory arthritus where markers would only be raised at the time of a flare and then return to normal.
My doctor agrees that osteo would not causes my symptoms and i cant account for anything else causing me to feel unwell.
Any advice please
