I was at my doctor’s and got the results of the MRI – finally. There are no signs of damage, just signs of fluid atrophy and bursitis. In reality, that just means they don’t know yet. So I’ve been referred to an Orthopedist for further investigation. I was referred to one of the private clinics they use, so I hope that I won’t have to wait very long.
Needless to say, I’m still on sick-leave. It would be weird if I wasn’t, considering the fact that the shoulders are just getting worse. They now cause me constant pain, despite pretty strong painkillers.
I went to my PT as well, to check what he had to say. He told me to continue with the exercises and asked if I could have some form of connective tissue problem. He’d just spoken to a woman with Ehler’s-Daulo’s syndrome and asked me to check it out.
I don’t believe I have EDS though, unless it’s the Hypermobility type (formerly type III), since the only symptoms of it I do have are joint and muscle pain and hypermobility. I have no problems with fragile skin, scars, bleeding and similar things. If any, then JHS (Joint Hypermobility Syndrome) seems more likely than EDS.
I have been checked for rheumatoid factors in my blood, and I’m clear so far, but I don’t know if that includes connective tissue problems.
My doctor also gave me a prescription for a stronger expectorant, to try and get rid of that cough that’s been there for the last couple of months.
