Well another problem to add to my growing list of things that are wrong with me! I discovered this has been in my charts for the last 4 years and I had no inkling of a clue that they had diagnosed me with this. Why was I not told about this? I do not know but again I am left with the sinking feeling that I will never get better.

Any thoughts??

Hi Scarred. A friend who works in the medical field tells me that polyarticular degenerative joint disease just means that you have degenerative joint disease at more than one level - which is consistent with your history listed below So it sounds like this is not a new diagnosis - just a restatement of your current injuries. Hope this helps!
