It was on my blood works form under clinical details.

I have been diagnosed with Raynards Disease, Sciatica, sacro illiac dysfunction, trochanteric bursitis, 2 lower herniating spinal discs, early wear and tear of the spinal cord, and deconditioning of the lower body.

I also get pain in my hands where I can't grip onto something for 2 long before it really hurts and/or I drop something by accident.

It also effects my shoulder and balance.

Poly means many, arthro means joint, and pathy means disease - so it just means you have disease or pain in many joints, which you knew already. Its a description of your symptoms, not a diagnosis.

Hope you feel better soon.

Doc thinks Rheumatoid or Lupus
