Subject: my appointment was very interesting

All these years my GP told me i had osteo in my lumbar region - been to see rheumy today regarding all the joint trouble i have had over the years, all the cortisone injections etc, he looked at my recent back xray and saw sacroiliitis, he is going to discuss this with radiographer as he thinks i have sero negative arthritis related to psoriasis that i didn't know i had!! My dad has psoriasis and he asked if i had anything like that in my scalp, I do, I have patches that flake and scab (sorry to be descriptive). He wants me to see OT and physio, I had bloods taken for HLA B27 antigen, i have to go to another hospital for conduction tests as he thinks i need the carpal tunnel operating on too!! phew, what a list!!
