Hello everyone my name is Stacie and Thank you for these forums.

guilty of taking pain free days for granted.

turned into thoracic arthritis(also have scoliosis)before Oct. i would'nt even take a pill for a headache now i feel like a walking pharmacy...lol
my 1st bone scan is set for the 15th...after 4 or 5 Dr. visits and 2 or 3 E.R. visits, my Dr said we will go from there maybe a mri..

  • Arthritis is actually quite painful. I deal with it in my lumbar area and like you I never liked to take pills for anything.

    Now I have found that it is necessary in order to have any quality of life at all.

    Good luck with your tests and please keep us posted.
