Area(s) affected: Hands, left and right
First I was diagnosed with rheuma when I was 15. In 2011 I went to the hospital because of unbearable pain in both hands. The doctor whom I met, didnít agree with the diagnosis rheuma. So she send me for an x-ray and scan. The doctors then send my scans and x-rays to the commission for bone tumors. They gave the diagnosis melorheostosis (18-01-2012). I have had several cortisone injections (5-4-2012 and in 2013), and surgery on both hands (2012 and 2013). I have not getting better results.
Iím not able to use my hands with full strength. My strength is getting out of my hands. I have pain in both hands 80% of the time and my right hand is getting thicker, more than my left hand. I have trouble with a lot of daily things such as writing, housekeeping and driving a car because I canít use my hands properly.
I have a consult with Dr Geert Mortier in Belgium. I will update my history when I have met with him.
