can anyone please advise...i am awaiting diagnosis. I had an accident exercising back in sept last year and still waiting for neurology appointment, i thought i felt shoulder blade came out which i pushed down then severe rib pain. Tests 2 months later showed weak myotones c5 to t1?. I had mri that showed badly ddd spurs and facet hypertrophy and moderate stenosis and nerve impingement. Gp did not think i needed referal to a specialist.
i had neurology appointment booked as private consultant recommended however nhs have cancelled/delayed. and last 3 months i have gone downhill and am seeking private advice re poss auto immune arthritis. However, my rib pain is getting excrutiating. 3 gps and rheumys do not know what is is as i have large swelling above breast on ribs. Now another coming up on other side. Worse when i put head forward neck sou ds like catching and snapping and so much pain between shoulder blades. I keep praying rheumy will xome up with something, had ultrasound and nhs xray just said lungs ok. Am planning on changing to more caring gp as mine just says dont know see specialist in several months.
Can anyone advise where i can go to get this looked at or if i should go a and e? Last weekend the chest area was bright red and it almost looks like blocked blood capillaries. I have to try and keep neck and shoulders back and sit straight all time. My mri is 6 months old and doubt i can get another. Im really concerned if i should see someone and if thoraic outlet you can have rib swelling? Im not sure to be honest if caused by my accident or possibly arthritis condition.
i dont have private medical or even a life at the moment and desperate for advice asap as i have other health issues and worried sick. Thank you
