Hi everyone. I am a 63 year old female and I have CS with which I get pain travelling up the back of my head. I have had the condition for about 2 years now.
I work in a well known high street store and have always worked on clothing, when I developed CS I managed quite well at work, It didn't really make a lot of difference. However I have recently been moved to the cafe which is about a 10 times heavier job. I am walking around all day (sometimes 8 hours) carrying trays of dishes or food or carrying piles of plates and cups. Since being in there I have felt a big difference to the pain and stiffness in my neck. Do you think this is just a natural degeneration or is it my job that is making it worse?
I believe its the job and have been asking my manager to refer me to occupational health but she is keep putting it off. I have also developed pain in my hips since being in there and find that by the end of my shift I can hardly walk some days. They are trying to get us "oldies" to retire I think but I'm not ready to so why should I be put in this position.
Sorry for the rant! lol
