5 years ago I had a bone scan that was positive and was told that I have Rheumatoid Arthritis.4 Months ago my bone scan was repeated and I was told it was normal.I was told to stop my medication. Now my pain is worse.The stiffness last for hours. I have a lot of fatigue and weakness.
Bone scans on occasion can help identify inflammed joints, but should be used in conjunction with history and physical exam. Discuss with your doctor the results and how it factored into his/her decision to stop medications.
