Thanks @Sybil. I don’t really know yet what the ‘mild’ bits mean. Our respective rheumatologist who phoned me this morning (on a day’s leave - she is really special and especially nice and kind) will consult with her colleagues on Monday on the basis of the x-ray results I’ve just posted to her. I truly hope ‘mild’ means mild. But it goes a long way to explaining why I ended up with spontaneous stress pelvic fractures 2 years ago (despite the Dexa scan showing very mild osteopenia in my neck only - not my pelvis) and it obviously explains why this horrid back pain came from nowhere too.
Most of my pain is all referred. My spine actually feels fine. Most of it sits on the back of both hips in a permanent spasm which is so wearing. But it is easing and oddly the steroids which I’ve got to come off of yet again help that. I’m abit worried when I end up with no steroids yet again the pain levels will again increase significantly. I don’t want to go through the pain levels I suffered last weekend ever again.
I think this all started in mid April, got worse on holiday and here we are. I doubt all three went at the same time, probably one at a time.
And yes I feel wobbly. I really wish my mother was still alive, I could just do with one of her hugs presently and some of her good sense and her giggles. Such is life I guess.
However treatment has come a long way these days (rather like PsA) so I am hopeful I won’t spend every second year or more suffering a fracture of something or other.
