I was diagnosed with cervical spondylosis early on this year after countless visits to the doctors and specialists. I was shown an x ray pointing out the areas of wear and tear on my vertibrea in my neck which apparently explained the pain i am getting in my neck shoulder and arm ( on my right side). Apparently the vertebrae have shards of bone which are causing the discomfort in the above mentioned areas. Huh!!! Discomfort!!!!! I'm in bloody agony!!!!! I am now unable to move my arm without pain and any sudden movement causes a spasm so severe that it makes me yelp like a dog!!!! I have constant pain, numbness and strain on my right side starting from my neck through my shoulder,arm and into my fingers. The pain also goes into my chest and under arm muscles. Sometimes the pain is so great that i cannot move that side of my body and i am semi - imobile. This is now affecting my work as a special needs teaching assistant and i am concerned that i may not be able to continue my career. I sometimes wonder if there is anything more sinister lurking beneith this diagnosis as i feel so unwell sometimes. Maybe it's just depression, but i do sometimes wonder whether i will be around to outlive my kids as i feel so bloody ill all the time. Does anyone else share my fears and discomfort or am i just a bloody hypocondriact???? Pardon the spelling but i'm pissed off and a bit pissed too !!!! Had the family round 4 dinner and the wine flowed a bit too much!!!!
