Hi and Welcome! Could you be a little more specific, have you been to a rheumy or had any x-rays yet. What type of arthritis are we talking about here. I have ReA and AS and have had both x-ray and MRI, the MRI was for my spine and sac joints to help determine the AS ( Ankoylosing Spondylitis). That is why I am asking what type of arthritis you are referring to, sometimes x-rays are all you need. Get back to me and I will be better able to answer your question. I look forward to hearing from you.
