| | Re: Painful and swollen sternoclavicular joint, has anyone else experienced this?
i have been having severe problems for about six months without any luck in doctors discovering what the problems could be, i have had blood tests and x-rays but nothing showed up.i h ave recently seen a SPECIALIST who was a bit unsure but has come to the conclution that it is probable Osteoathritis, i just accepted this without much debate but on having read yours and others i am sure that it more than likely i have a similar problem to yours.same shoulder pain, big lump on collar bone which depending on the day can be extremely painful,after a couple of months my neck pain started and can be more painful than shoulder and collar.
sleeping has been a nightmare with having to sleep in the upright position the only way of comfort. and lately over the last month or two i have got the liquid filled blisters on the soles and sides of my feet, which untill reading this heathboard thought had no conection.I have since shown my doctor the facts on this and he has agreed to put me through an MRI scan next monday. hopefully just finding out what the problem is can start to help in re building what has turned into rather an unpleasant period in my life.thanks for your detailed story, has boughme new hope,
