I'm new to this forum and would like to know if there's anyone with osteoarthritis in the neck.
I have been suffering for a good few years now and its only getting worse. I'm 44yrs old and had also been put forward for a hip replacement last January. Unfortunately I had to cancel this due to depression and severe anxiety which is still an ingoing battle.My muscles have been seizing up over the last year and due to anxiety my neck muscles are very tender and unbelievably stiff. Itry to make it better by doing stretch exercises and weekly massages but hardly any results. I have put my name down for osteotherapy and would like to know if anyone has experiences into this. I am on mirtazipan and plegalin for depression and anxiety . the plegalin is also supposed to work as a muscle relaxant but I can't see the benefits. Muscle twitching and shakiness all over my body. I know a lot has got to do with anxiety but I also think that having osteoarthritis doesn't help me at all. Makes it a bit of a vicious circle.
Therefore I am looking into ways to make the osteoarthritis easier to cope and live with.
Hope you have some suggestions and or advise.
