So xrays are showing that all of the wretched symptoms in my neck & the pain in my hand are "just OA". Am I supposed to be happy about this?
Apparently, there is some bad stuff going on in my low back. My DO's nurse isn't the best when it comes to enunciation, so I have to wait for a letter from doc & referral for MRI.
Best I could gather, the xrays showed DDD, narrowing of spaces & I don't know what all else.
Is it normal to be so dismissive of OA? It hurts--don't they know that? While I'm happy there is no evidence of RA, I'm not sure I can write this off as mere arthritis.
I'm on pain meds & Soma which helps keep the neck headaches at bay, at least.
Oh well, we're just at the beginning of the process here.
