    HI i have cervical spondylosis too, was in a car crash in 2006 and they kept thinking it was whiplash i had, was 2009 when an mri revealed cervical spondylosis, im 36 and have exactly same symptoms you have, ive had physio, laser treatment, accupuncture and trigger point injections, nothing works, been to pain clinic millions of times and tried so many different tablet combinations from the doctors but again none really work, i may as well take smarties!, my tabs at present are Gabapentin, Co codomol, Tramadol and, amatryptiline, altogether i have 19 tabs a day, and no nothing helps me, occasionally i find if i fold my pillow up in bed and put the pressure on my neck it can help, its uncomfortable lying down like that for a while but can help, cant seem to claim disability for this yet cant work due to comes on anytime. also the gabapentin supposed to stop the numbes/tingling in arm/legs, it dont work for me but have heard it works for others so maybe ask your doctor as may help you, i am lucky though as my partner is superb and i couldnt imagine coping on my own with this, please message me anytime anyone my email is xxx

    Hi Kathy. I understand why you are feeling so low. It's like no one else can understand the frustration and pain living with cs. My understanding of the way of life is much better since finding this forum. In fact, I feel slightly better, knowing that other people have the same problems as myself. How are you now? I see that your first message was in September 2010. Have you managed to get more help?
