Hi all,

I was diagnosed with OA over 5yrs ago. Had it under control but this year pain has got worse. Had IM steroid injection but only lasted a month, before it lasted 6! In last 2 months my ankles swollen on both over ankle bone bad and slightly on inside of joint too. Thought it could be RA. Can you have both types of arthritis together?

I saw physiotherapist at gp office. She said you can't. I asked if i could have a scan as this was new symptom ive had that isnt easing. She said no cos ive been diagnosed with OA and its that.

I still want a scan, is there anyway i can get one done? Im hoping to see my rhumatologist soon but he said it will be my last visit with him.
