Hi everyone, it's lovely to meet you all. I've just joined this forum as I am currently in the process of being diagnosed.
Since I was 19 I have had bad back problems and have had a few procedures done with little effect. Last year when I was 24 I was referred to a rheumatologist as the results of my MRI and bone scans showed inflammation of my sacroiliac joint and hips. When I attended my last appointment I was told that they think I have a seronegative arthopathy and bilateral sacroilitis, I've not been able to find too much information on the sero negative srthopathy and wondered if their was any information available.
For the last 4 months I have been taking sulfasalazine and naproxen. On my last appointment I was given an injection of depo-medrone to try and boost the effects of the medication. I think this has helped my wrist, as it is not quite as painful which is good but hasn't had much effect on my back and hips as of yet. Hopefully something will help soon as I am finding it very painful to walk in my hips and unconfortable when sitting at work.
The other problem I seem to be getting is feeling extremely tired all the time which makes it difficult to do things sometimes.
I'd be grateful for any advice, thank you in advance
