Hi I am jus new to this. I went to the doctors a few months back as I was having back pain that was waking me in the night and I was stiff in the mornings. I also had scaly patches on my scalp which the doctor said was psoriasis and asked me to get my bloods checked. A few weeks later I was called in as they found inflammation in my blood. The doctor referred me to a rheumatologist as it might be psa, she said the waiting time was unpredictable. I went back today as I am still experiencing this back pain. I asked a different doctor the waiting time and he said the standard waiting time at the minute is 98 weeks!! Has anyone else had to wait this long?
I have read psa can be trigger by strep throat? I had tonsillitis before the back pain and a week later pain in my ribs that lasted for about 10 weeks. Has anyone else experienced rib pain? Would this be related?
