I have Chronic Pain for 9 years. In the begining they found I have back pain in th spine. This pain usually accours for 3 days and got to normal for 3 or 4 months. In 2006 this pain got on top and my Neurologist made miofacial infiltrations and I felt better for 2 years. Recently in september 2008, this pain back more strongly and Neurologist made another infiltration on my spine. Three days before my pain get alive again. Till this time I never had a day without pain. The pain is more active in the morning and at night. Recently I got to a Rheumatologist and she said I have clinically Ankylosing Spondylitis (AS). I made blood test 2 times and answer was Negative. Some poeple told that this diagnosis can be positive trying blood tests many times.
Is there anybody that had negative for times and got positive after that ?
My pain is in my back, on sacroiliac area, moving up to my spine and down to my legs. There is a pain in my shoulders too.
I do HidroTerapy 3 times a week and using medications as above.
I apreciatte your assistance. I need a diagnosis.
I went to another Neurologist that said that I dont have neurological problems, but suggested to do one Transcranial Magnetic Stimulation (to find a better place) to start a Transcranial Electrical Stimulation. I read that there is no danger of damage in my brain, but I´m very afraid about it.
Thanks for your responses.
