Randall Long (1 year ago):

Have a failed lower back fusion and been on low dose hydrocodone for 7 years. Last 3 years I have to have cortizone injections in my knees, and now the xrays shows bone to bone in my shoulder, Doc says its beyond cortizone and gives a numbing injections. Need a shoulder replacement. Is it from long term use of the pain meds or caffeine ?
In fairly good shape, not overweight. Thanks R.Long

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • I've been diagnosed with sero-negative rheumatoid arthritis. I have only tested minimally positive on the anti-CCP test and had a slightly high SED rate. My most recent tests showed some slight elevation in some RA marker tests, but nothing really significant. My rheumatologist is now doubting whether I have RA or some other pain syndrome going on.
