Are your labs all negative? Mine are except hlab27. My sed rate and c reactive protein levels are low
I do t have a diagnosis but the si pain is really getting me. Mri shows a lot of argthritis at si and lumbar. Just had my third nerve ablation July 2. Hoping it works. Not to optimistic now! I’ve only take NSAIDs and pain meds. Never took biological. I have taken prednisone in past and it helped a little while
My hla B 27 was negative however I was still diagnosed based on the level of pain and areas of pain I had been experiencing for years prior.
@A MySpondylitisTeam Member My rheumatologist said that not all people with spondylitis will have the high sed rate or high C-reactive protein. My sed rate was never measured and my CRP was low.
@A MySpondylitisTeam Member I was diagnosed with non-radiographic axial spondylitis mainly based on where I have pain and the HLA B27 positive test result. My pain has been in both SI joints and low back stiffness. I had an MRI of my pelvis and SI joints and that showed severe inflammation in both joints with bone marrow edema.
Ok. Guess my xrays don’t show it
