Not sure if I am posting in the correct forum. A few years ago I was told I have arthritis in the neck and degeneration through out the spine. Recently I have been suffering a lot of pain in the back which only really improves if I don't walk around or do any activity. Heat helps a lot but I can only take ibuprofen. My question is can anyone with this condition tell me their experience with the following.
1. where in the back do you get pain
2. what does it feel like
3. what helps
4 Does it ever seem like it could be affecting digestion.
I am due back to my gp on Tuesday, I thought of asking for an MRI scan, gallbladder scan and camera down the throat. I should add I am 70 years of age and have just managed to get through my 70th birthday party this weekend in pain at various times. I also have arthritis in my knees, possibly hips. I have IBS and diverticular disease plus some other health conditions. I am concerned this pain in serious. Thank you in advance.
