I'm Nikki and i'm from the UK. Have had a horrible year of neck pain and sciatica this year. Diagnosed last month with a congenital fusion of C5 and C6...amazing what you find out when you're nearly 40!! I'm a Dermatology Nurse and i also work as a Community Nurse as a temp (lots of bandaging/wound care etc...might have to re-think this now though as i'm struggling with muscle fatigue alot). I guess that i'm quite suprised that i've gone on this long without any serious pain problems really seeing as nursing is such a physically demanding job!
I hope it's ok to add that i am a Christian and would love to hear from other Christians who are struggling with things.
