Hi Vannie. We got back this week-end and then I had to go to the ER. Leave it to me!
I know that my groin pain was from RA. Your back pain may be from your OA and lower pain from Sciatica. I haven’t had bad or continual back pain except for cramping/spasms. Oh and just an incident with the coxsys once. I hopefully do not have OA yet. My Mom has OA pretty bad and definitely has back pain. She’s probably had OA for about 15 years give or take. She has had the injections in the back also which helped some for a while but she said it wasn’t painfree. Perhaps because she is in her 80’s?
That’s good that your Rheumy decided against them touching the bursa. Wonderful that your hip pain level is that low. Your Rheumy is a keeper. I like her.
Yes, I have had Asthma for many years but it is doing okay thankfully. Except when I had that bad flu recently. I had a lot of trouble trying to breath and sleep. Happy it’s gone.
How did your MRI go? Did you get to discuss the results with your Ortho and Rheumy yet? Hopefully they can be of help to you. That machine scares me. I had my infusion and blood tests done the same day as your MRI.
