I have just recently been told by my GP that the X-rays show i have an early wearing of the cervical bones in my neck (can't remember which ones).
Having typed this into google to find some info i discovered this site. I mentioned this to my GP on my next visit and he agreed that this is what i have. Although i haven't had an MRI to confirm, everything ties up.
I have had what can only be described as a burning, aching pain in my right shoulder and neck for about a year now. Previous to that i had a couple of years of niggling pain. Coupled with the pain is what feels like tendons or bone clicking against eachother when i turn my neck.
I am currently on Gabapentin after trying Amytriptyline, physiotherapy and osteopathy. I am still waiting for it to kick in and reduce the pain.
The GP has referred me to a pain clinic but i am still waiting for the date.
I have just advised work and my CTM has informed Occupational Health and HR. They are looking to relocate me into another role as my current role involves a lot of lifting. So for they have been good but it is early days.
Just thought i'd introduce myself and give a bit of background to my story. I hope i can find lots of information from more experienced people and pass that on to help others!
So, HI ALL!! :D
