:confused:I have been seeing my rheamy for 5 years regarding joint/bone and tendon problems. ( I still have not had a formal diagnosis but am taking plaquenil, lodine sr, and codine) I have just had a MRI which has showed up that I have Dysplastic L5 which is causing severe back pain. I have now been refered to a spine surgeon as my rheamy did not want to comment much on this condition as it is not his expertise subject. What does this mean for my future? As I was born with this does it mean that my 4 young children could also have the same happen to them as they get older? If I google this it comes up with spondyloliethisis, is it the same condition?
I also have tried to go back to work but I am in too much pain and really struggled with working as well as looking after my children, so had to stop. To be honest I am struggaling with nearly all day to day activities.Am I entitled to any benefits? Any information on this would be fantastic before I see the surgeon as I am yet to recieve even my appointment date.
