Duck, I have had a rhem in the past dx me with fibro, he did xray my kness , and said yes there is arhtrtis but everyone has arthritus, he told to to do water aerobic, wish is good, but i hate the sun, make me feel awful, overcast days is better for me, i wish our pool was indoor.
My old pcp ran alot of tests on me bascially saying you have arthrits and aome type of aoutimmune disease, as i had always had an elvated temp, probably due to inflamation, which I cant take any nsaids, for it, becasue they destroy my stomach, amongst other unwanted side effects like ringing in my ear ect.
Bextra was the only one i could ever take, if it were destrying my stomach, i didnt know about
it, it was great it help my inflamtion giving me some relief. but they went and took it offf the market
My pcp now is an interlist( i cant spell), and my pain mangement who has had me have to cats one last year one this year, showserious severe changes in one year with the arthrits, and withthe disc dengeneting, than it did one year ago, so i asked the PM im i just gonna keep getting worse and all he has to say was
lets put your on zanflex for my spasms, and continue strecting.
I think i probably need to go to a ortho pedic sugeon. but thats more money and yet anther dr, and more test more money, my husband will kill mee, allready thinks im on too many meds, and doesnt bleives how much i do hurt, i have to take apain killers to actually get a good clean throughly bathroom etc.
I have applied for disablity again, i have moere issues than arthritis, i have Interstial Cystitis, which is where my bladder has constant ulcer on it and casue bllous to be on my urine at time, makes me go to the bathroom sometimes more than 70 times a day, and is painful. My limbs go numb very easliy.
so I am just looking for someone who has ddd and advanded to tell what they did, and how is the out come. Becasue i have no Idea what im gonna be doing, God help me, thanks for listening., I hope i get more replies with people with ddd with severe arthritis to go with it and how they cope etc, thank you........
