Poor you, I have no idea what arthroscopy is (will google it a minute) but t doesn't sound a lot of fun to have it once never mind on two different body parts, no wonder you are off to bed. good night, sleep tight.😴

Arthroscopy is when they use key hole surgery in joint arthrogram is when they do MRI with dye

Just looked it up - says it s minimally invasive - then I read that they make a small incision - about the size of a button hole. I'd beg phoning it was a very small if not tiny buttonhole :)

Poor you, it would have been easier had the injection worked! Hope the tests show you what is wrong and rest up you sound very tired X hugs

Sorry to hear this. It does sound as though you're getting good attention, which is what I'd expect from Nuffield. My experience there was good, once I'd identified my rheumy.

morning Deejojo I am sorry you're fed up, and not sleeping well. i've had the dye stuff it wasnt to bad, then they went onto the nuclear stuff, wow i watched as had a 4 lane highway around my ankle, Cool said I, then the doctor said you have shattered your ankle into 4 pieces doh!! my parachute had folded around 80-100 ft above the ground, it gave new meaning to I felt the earth move, it did about 1/4 of an inch after which it was solid lol. oh and I had busted one of my vertebrae which lucky shot outwards away from the spinal column.

Anyway you're not alone I am rooting for you Girl along with everyone else on this site.

to help with my sleep I have been having a hot bath with epsom salts at night and it does seem to help me drift off.
