So i had blood test for gout and rheumatoid arhtritis both negative so doc is sending me to a rheumatolagist he says I most likely sufer from sciatic arhtritis. Ive looked every where and cannt find any very informative info on this. I have legg pain everyday but some days it will hit a 8-9. Ive hade a micro on l5-s1 over a yr ago and have done quite well. This pain im talking about i had before the surgery and for most of my life it seems.So what am I in for at my first rheumy apointment. Some days the pain is so bad i cannt hardly stand it one of the only reasons im going to doc is when im in this much pain my blood presure gets realy high the last bad day i took blood presure and it was 113 over 148 on a less pain full day it will be 128- 80. The docs also wont give me anything to get through the pain on the bad days so i take 600mg of advil and grit my teeth very hard. Any info to help would be apreciated. I do alot of streatching on leggs. Im also active i work and walk alot. Thanks for any input.
