spondylosis or spinal osteoarthritis
I have only recently been diagnosed it all started with arm then neck pain leading importantly to continual headaches. It is prominent in my neck but I am now finding that my movement overall is becoming somewhat difficult but gladly not impossible as i enjoy my swimming and aqua classes. Sadly I find that going to the gym as hitherto is a problem. I used to like cycling but am afraid of trying it again.
The hospital have referred me for injections, therapy, and some sort of device which sounds like "tim".
I wonder if my condition is what is called a "disability" a word I am scared of though. Also I wonder what the injectection entail and is my condition going to get worse - I am 74 and a bit.
Can anywhere out there in this wonderful world add any comments or hope/help/advice. My doctor seems to evade most questions, in all fairness due to time and pressures to deal with other patients.
Al I am a "new kid on the block" with up to now, a strong sense of humour but for how long?
