Re: Arthritis at 41?
Well, the rheumatologist said I have fibromyalgia and he didn't think I had arthritis at all. He didn't actually look at the xrays himself even though I got them for him, he just read the report from my orthopedist. I've got an order for blood tests but I haven't had time to get them done yet. But I never thought I had rheumatoid arthritis in the first place - I don't have any of the symptoms of RA. The orthopedist said I had arthritis in my hips and back, which I assume is early osteo. I had an MRI on my knee this afternoon, and I've got to get my back done in a few months, but my back's actually doing a lot better this week. It's my hip that's bothering me now.
