Now they are saying that this could all have a know in effect with peoples nervous system. Causing nerves pain throughout the body.
Hi @A MySpondylitisTeam Member, would you share what the neurologist found out or told you? I go to a Neurologist in 2 wks. I have never had that specialist see me in the 4 decades I have experienced pain and fatigue.
Thank you for sharing.
Thank you for your reply.
It is the unknown of what is causing this.
Hope you are well x
I had severe middle/upper back pain and saw a Neurologist at University if Michigan. I had a Thoracic MRI which just showed a few bulging disks and mild Dowagers Hump, but nothing serious. I also had a Thoracic EMG which was abnormal, but the doctor thinks the pain was most likely caused by my Diabetes (Thoracic Radiculopathy). I had it for over a year but it is better now. I took Gabapentin, Flexeril and had months of Manual Physical Therapy to get it under control.
