Is it really osteo when my eyes now effected?
Hi everyone. Thanks for all the comments last time. My capability work meeting went well. Just the first stage. Work really supportive.
Im questioning my diagnosis this week. Wondering if anyone has had similar ? So i have IBS and was diagnosed with OA last year. Hands, knee, lumbar facet joints. I have a family history of Chrones and Ankyolising spondylitis. My calprotectin levels read high. Went to rheumatology a year ago who did bloids and said no inflammation. Mri showed osteo. I feel like i have more than osteo. My joints are all flared up worse since having covid, so much so j can hardly walk down stairs in morning or lift the kettle. I am in so much pain. I am active, i walk 3 x a week, do yoga and outdoor swimming. My eyes have been bothering me recently so i just returned from optician and she said they have inflammation due to the arthritis. Can this be caused by osteo or is it more likely RA? Im so confused as feel so unwell. Im also experiencing pins and needles in my hands a lit and starting to feel severe pain in my feet aswell. To me it seems like a lot of inflammation going on?
Any advice helpful. Please. So fed up feeling unwell and approaching a year i have been off work.😭 i am only 50. I know that with RA there is good meds to control it. Where as i only have lots of pain killers. My sister gets an injection weekly for her chrones and its stopped all her pain in her joints. With the NHS can you push for a 2nd referral?
