So I've had quite a few x rays in my seach for a diagnosis. The first doctor back in 2012 reported quite extensive OA in hands ,hips and right SI joint as well as osteopenia in wrists, soft tissue swelling and two erosions of the styloid process. A wrist MRI a few years later saw a large erosion on my third mcp joint of my right hand. Today it's reported that there is only an early osteophyte on my left thumb with no other significant degenerative changes! Where did the erosions and osteopenia go? And any fool can see the enlarged Herberden's nodes and Bouchards nodes on every single finger! Current x rays also report normal SI joints. The first doctor did take standing x rays and no one else has done so, so maybe he could see things that they could not. In any case, with the current report the doctor doesn't believe my pain.
