A friend referred me to come to this website after I got diagnosed with arthritis and sacroiliitis on my spine. I am 34 and am a nurse. My back is mostly sore and still in the middle of the nite and in the am. I also have some shoulder pain which I don't know if that's related to my back problem. Anyways, my dr. suggested me to quit nursing as I cannot avoid lifting and bending my back and I found that hard to believe. I am trying to get a second opinion next week.
Anyone here was suggested to quit your profession? Did you listen or keep on going? I don't know what the consequences are if I hurt myself again. Any suggestions are welcome.
