Hi Louise, I notice someone commented on the spelling, but looking at the words, I have to ask if this is dyslexia? This is because letters are often in the wrong order which is not just someone with poor spelling. Do you sometimes spell something and you know it looks wrong but don't know how to make it right? Just a thought. Take care. SHE X

As you are desperate and cannot understand your GP can I suggest you look up the words in the letter on the internet. Wikypedia (I can't spell either!) or other sites will inform you about the disease.

Its great news that you do not have spondyloarthritis. Your GP now has the rheumatologists letter and you need to make an appointment to discuss how your pain can best be managed. Your GP needs to go through the letter with you and answer your questions.

MRIs need someone to interpret them who knows what they are doing. Did the rheumatologist see your MRI?

Hi louiseamos

Sorry I didn't reply last night. I have had this horrible condition for the last 18 years getting worse over the last 3 years when I had a coach accident so it would be unfair for me to give you advice. I was very fortunate to find a very good physiotherapist all those years ago and he keeps me mobile he's worth every penny I pay. As Calceolaria has said you need the MRI results explained to you. I have a print of of mine ask your doctor to give you yours if you don't have it. I spoke to my consultant who said there was an operation I could have done but it would only ease the pain in my leg not my back and it was risky his advice was not to have it. If only my body didn't reject the medication well I'm trying the pain patch hope they work. I'm very sorry you are suffering please keep in touch I will always answer. Take care xxx

Hi sorry is your name Poppy ... It's so sad how you are suffering I thought I had problems. I had cancer at 42 and everything snowballed with me from that but I am much older than you but we all want a good quality of life. I do think you need to talk all this through with your doctor you need answers. I have had my pain patch on for nearly 24 hours and my pain has not been to bad so I hope I don't have a reaction. Please let me know how things go. Janet. Xxx

Hi louiseamos

I'm glad your seeing someone who will answer your questions. Take someone with you or write your questions down and don't leave until you get your questions answered. I had to go and have X-rays on my hip Tuesday. 2 years ago I had to have a knee replacement and they think it has put pressure on my hip. Is it the pain that's the problem it was with me I'm on my 2 nd patch it seems to be working just feeling a little dizzy but I can cope with that. Lots of hugs.cloggs xxx

I got copies of all of my results and took them with me when I went to see a (recommended) chiropracter. He was brilliant and as part of the initial session, he went through and explained things in layman terms. I have a combination of DDD in all C and S with arthritis filling in the disc spaces, and the nerve pain was being overlooked for ages . Hosp were useless, GP good, but the constant pain and frustrations took several years of life away from me and the family. It will cost to go privately, but it is a fall back when nerves trap for me, especially as mine is inoperable.

Hi, I have spondyloarthritis and degenerative arthritis in the spine. Am living with constant, daily pain, mobility is getting worse. My specialist advised against having an operation. Very risky and involves putting rods in etc, also no guarantee of success. All he could recommend was seeing a chiropracter. As you say, not available on N.H.S. and as I am not well off financially I would be interested to hear your opinion on the results you have. Ann

Louise, obviously we are not doctors and cannot give medical advice but it might be useful to type a copy of the MRI report you received. We might be able to interpret the medical language. It can help to put the diagnosis into context.

I am saying this because I find it strange that the MRI would diagnose inflammatory arthritis, yet the rheumatologist would disagree. So, if you say exactly what it said on the MRI report, it might help.

That said, you really need a medical professional who knows your history to explain this to you. Who ordered the scan?

Hi crashdoll.just saw this.I don't think its inflammatory. No checked its not!!they were checking for a.s.. So because its not don't go back to her..all other words I've wrote here are correct xx

Sorry to say I am in a funny mood tonight. I think it is something to do with not being able to do the garden at the moment.

I know what it is as I suffer from it, you will find your answer on NHS Choices.

Hello

Scolliosis is a deformation of the spine I think Richard the 111 had that, can be wrong.

Hello Louise,

Sorry you are going through the mill.

They really need to explain what is going on with your body, this disability is yours and to know causes and problems can make your life a little bit more meaningful

Good Luck, keep hold
