My blood work for possible inflam arth came all back normal, from RA to Lupus...xrays on feet show heel spurs and osteo as well has hands.
My achilles tendons on both feet remain painful and are getting worse to which I told her. She said the tendons wouldn't show on xrays so the next step would be to to do a MRI on them. She said that would show arthritic inflamation??? So she is setting that up, increasing my Relafin to help with pain, and making a dermatologist appt to check me for psoraisis.
I know Osteo hurts, but I don't know the difference in pain between it and PA. All I know is walking now is virtually impossible, let alone the steps to my home.
Being in limbo, stinks!

Well, blood tests are cut and dry for any could still have it and have all the tests be normal.
I forgot, have you seen a poidetrist yet? Those spurs can be deblilitating and probably need to be removed.
Hang in there, I know how the unknown can be so unnerving!
