Going to the Rheumatologist tomorrow
« on: February 24, 2008, 05:20:19 PM »
I go to the Rheumatologist tomorrow.  For the past several years I've been having constant pain in my spine and back.  For about the past year or two, I've also been having weakness and pain elsewhere in the body, including my legs, knees and feet.  My spine specialist wants to see if I have any arthritic condition.  This problem has been plaguing me for several years.  For example, at times I have great difficulty walking, and my mood is certainly affected by the constant pain and stiffness.

Please pray that the doctor finds why I'm having this constant pain and stiffness in my back.  Thanks!

It's good that you are seeing a rheumatologist.  I would think he can find out what is going on.  I'll pray for you.
