I've been getting more and more problems with my body the last months.
It all started in April when I got diagnosed with a herniated disc in the neck. The herniated disc is probably because a heavy crash with my snowboard some time ago.
After I got that diagnose I have been extremely worried because the doctors didn't now if I would be able the continue with the mountainbike which has been my whole life the last 15 years.
My family keep telling me that all my problems that I will write under here could be because of the extreme stress and because I have stopped to use my body since the herniated disc, and it could be even if I find it highly unlikely.
Anyway, here are all my problems:
Since two months ago: Been having wrist pain since in both wrists. The pain goes on top of the back of my my hand and up on my forearms. Feels like it burns on the inside and gets worse when I write on a keyboard. The fingers cracks a little bit as well, not so you can hear it but I can feel it.
Since 6 weeks ago I have had the same kind of pain in both my foot wrists.
Since 1.5 half week I have been having pain in my lower back when I stand or walk to much. It feels like I am tired in the back at the same time. The hips also been hurting and they are cracking/snapping a little bit when I walk.
When I ride a bike they don't snapp, but I get a little bit pain in my coccyx from the saddle.
Also the shoulders have started cracking a lot and hurting a bit.
Since yesterday the left side of my jaw have been hurting when I chew.
Also the rest of my body have been cracking really much lately.
I had an appointment with the RA-doctor two weeks ago, before the problems with the back started. He took all the test he could take including the one for HLA-B27, and I all results was good and I didn't have the HLA-B27.
What do you guys think? Does this sound like AS?
I will have MRI soon on feet, hands, back and shoulders. I know it can be hard to see bone changes on MRI early in the disease, but shouldnt they be able to see that when my joints are crack so much?
