Postby Dianeb » Sat Feb 09, 2013 6:38 pm

I just got a letter following my rheumy consultation and it has diagnosed these - anyone got any idea what they mean.

I think it roughly translates to 'on the scrap heap' :lol:
Still, I'm guessing it's a good letter to show my Atos doctor tomorrow morning when he arrives to tell me how well I am!!

poor posture? Due to years of horse riding, but I've always had good posture. Saying that.... they do think my hip issues are down to years in the saddle. I have spinal stenosis too which has previously been unsuccessfully operated on. I woke up a fortnight ago unable to get out of bed or move so had Xrays and MRI and this is what's been diagnosed,

Well confused now!!

Rheumy doesn't agree with labels of FM or ME and lumps them all together under Chronic Pain syndrome so I know now what CPS means :lol:

Oh well, and there was me thinking I was impressive for once :too-upset:

I have the loss of lordosis and in some people it may not cause any symptoms but with me it does becuase of everything else agrivating it.

The spine is curved inwards so my butt stick out :oops: :lol: but iv lost height from this. It adds to the back spasms i get and stiffness plus nerve pain.

I cannot lie flat as my spine curves in nor stand flat up against a wall and curve in my back seems to be the area i get alot of spasms in.

In some cases the spine gets pushed out of alignment by the stiffness and spasms which a pain clinic consultant told me.

Thanks Lisa, they think this is why I feel like I'm being tasered when I walk :yikes:

At least I can use it as an excuse for my 'not so little' backside :lol: :lol: :lol:
