Heather, an inmate penpal, asked me to find out what I can. Her doctor said ex-ray results of her hip showed slerotic changes along SI Joints. What does that mean? What causes it? What can she do about it? She's just turned 40 and a friend said she shouldn't have this problem at her age. Medical just told her to take Ibruprofen when it hurts. She thinks there's got to be more to it than that, but she can ask for medical treatment if she knows some facts. Is this ththe beginning of Multiple Sclerosis? Is exercise, surgery or yoga an answer? What does her future hold with these changes. Can anything minimize its progression?
