I'm looking for a bit of help. I've been struggling with my back and neck for ages now. I'm under a rheumatologist but just for mixed connective tissue disease. Due to my back pain I went to see a chiropractor yesterday.
He said he was shocked that I hadn't yet had an xray on my neck and back to rule out rheumatoid arthritis. I have now had the xray and get the results next week. He also said it's rare for a 33 year old to have this type of pain.
Just wondering what anyone's experiences are... I know RA has been on the cards for a while.. Can an xray confirm or rule it out? Is back and neck pain even a symptom? I also get pains in my fingers and take hydroxychloroquine.
Any replies would be helpful
