Hi there I am a 63yr old lady who has always been fit and active up to about 6 months ago, running 3-4 times a week.
I started having stiffness and a bit of pain now and again in my neck about a year ago and have recently been diagnosed with cervical sponylosis in c5-c6.. I havent had an x-ray or scan but am having physio at the moment and relentlessly doing my stretching exercises and some resistance exercises to try to build up the muscle supporting the neck. I don't have pain in shoulder or back, mine goes from neck up the back of my head up to the top of the head. The pain in the neck feels like someone is nipping or pinching me very hard on both sides of neck. The nights are the worst when lying down. I read everything I can about this condition, however there isn't a lot written about the symptons I am experiencing. Is there anyone who has similar symptons to mine on here? I would be really interested to hear about your experiences.
