More Unremarkable Tests, Still the Same Amount of Pain

Today I finally had my nuclear bone scan. While getting that test done I was able to see the results myself. Obviously I am no radiologist, but my joints and spine were much brighter than the rest, so I was wondering if that’s significant at all?

My doctor had originally told me it was, however, the radiologist wrote “unremarkable” - a word I’m getting very sick of reading. I’m definitely struggling to stay hopeful. I obviously don’t want bad results, but on the other hand I want them to find something during one of my tests, that way I receive an actual diagnosis and can figure out a proper treatment plan. I know that sounds dramatic. I’m just getting very frustrated with the constant doctor’s appointments and continuous lab work/tests just to find out they aren’t finding anything.

Has anyone else gone through this?
