I have osteoarthritis in both knees and my right foot and have accepted that and can work with that. But the double whammy now is that I think I have it in the neck (maybe shoulders too)
Talk about feeling aged by 20 years- very depressed about this and I'm seeing the doctor next week so she can refer for a scan or MRI. I thought at first it might be a bone spur because there's a thickened mass with a tiny lump at the top of spine. I've always had this slight mass, but it never hurt like this. My family and I were always ramrod straight with great posture and nobody had arthritis. I've adjusted my computer to eye level, do neck exercises, shoulder rolls, but I am sick sick sick of pain. Do we have to go through life like this (neck) or are there any options to stave it off from getting worse?
