I have inflammatory arthritis, presumed to be psoriatic arthritis though I've never been diagnosed with psoriasis. I recently had an MRI of my spine because I have symptoms of sacroiliitis and inflammatory back pain. I've had a lot of numbness and pins and needles in my hands and feet for years. No inflammation was found (it was done without contrast) but they discovered degenerative disc disease at several levels with some bulges and prolapse in the cervical and thoracic regions. Would this be anything to do with the inflammatory arthritis or is it unrelated? I'm 40 and the back pain has been going on for years. I've never had any injury/trauma to my spine.
