    More likely the other way round....i.e. that your shoulder problems have been caused by your cervical spondylosis issues.  That's common.  Standalone shoulder issues,  in theory,  shouldn't affect the neck in any sense.

    I have foraminal stenosis in the left side of my neck, had it for 2 years, more recently I have had frozen left shoulder and impingement, had surgery on this two weeks ago, I believe it is all related to the stenosis in my my neck, I was refused compensation as at 50 they said degenerative disc desease was common, but I beleive mine condition was caused by manual handling breeches. I am currently seeking ill health retirement as I believe the office based job is making my condition worse.

      Hi Divita,

      I'm just about to email my union and tell them i have enquired about ill health retirement, fortunately for me I have a series of photographs(taken by Management) showing me and a colleague carrying over 200kg up on our shoulders, so whilst the might deny causing the problem they cannot deny breaking the regulations, so if it has to go to the ombudsman it could prove quite embarrassing for someone, but hopefully it wont have to go that far.

      Hi Divita,

      my legs dont hurt, that would be a sign of damage in the lumber spine, mine is all in the cervical spine, that tends to affect your arms and hands more than anything, unfortunatley its my dominanat left arm that is affected, so makes using a keyboard quite a painful experience after a while.
