Hi everyone, I have ME CFS FMS IBS SYGRENS SYNDROME ASTHMA ALLERGIES & Lots more. About 2 months ago i started feeling a different pain than my rheumatic pain. It got so bad i had to go to see my gp he sent me for x-rays which revealed i had an illness called Degenerative ? ? It has 3 words but i dont know the other 2. I asked my gp what the illness was & he said wear & tear. Im totally frustrated & i wondered if wear & tear is arthritis? The reason im asking is because osteoarthritis is in my family they all have it but me. If anyone thinks it may be osteoarthritis i would be very happy to hear from you. May god bless you & yours Fibrolady37.
