"Hello," everyone :) i just wrote a page & hit the wrong button & deleted all of it, so here it goes again...Lol
i'm a 46-yr old mom of 7. i put my age cuz i'm not sure if this age is early 2 have Arthritis? Last yr my hands were in so much pain. i would wake up in the mornings & i couldn't move my fingers, they would be frozen. My doctor took x-rays on just the hands & they said i had arthritis in them & told me 2 see a Rheumatologist. i did schedule appt. but it was a 3-mth wait. Then once i reached the appt. date i would cancel (which i did it 3x), so i never did see them.
Well, i have been having intense migraines & i cannot move my neck literally almost @ all. So, i saw a Neurologist last Tuesday & he said something was definitely wrong. He prescribed Baclofen muscle relaxer 4 the time being, & ordered a regular x-ray of just my neck. i got the results 2-day & he said i had bad Arthritis in my neck & thinks their might be something else wrong. So, they R going 2 order an MRI of brain & neck.
i was wondering if their is a lot of different types of arthritis? i see on here that others mention osteoarthritis & i know of Rheumatoid 2, but i don't know the difference or what their about. is there pain meds they give 4 this? i also have pain in my hips...like when i sleep on either side i wake up & they really hurt, its kind of hard 2 explain the feeling.
Anywaz, i appreciate any advice or knowledge that U could share with me i'd really appreciate it.Thanx so much.
