Hi Jimmyjimmy, Thank you for your reply. I was just told I have disc problems in the top part and lower part of my neck and that I have Arthritis in my neck, probably due to lifting a lot most of my working life?

P.s that is a really good point, how come the doc didn't state which kind of Arthritis it was? Only because I was a tad shocked I didn't ask!!!

I have osteoarthritis in my neck, I was shocked too, but it not as bad as I thought it would be, it really only wear and tear a lot of people get it in third forties.

Find out what type it is. I manage mine very well.

Here's a good and short video about how sesame seeds help. It's worked for me since I began mixing them into my morning green smoothie about a year ago. Nobody seems to know about this, so I'm telling as many as I can!
