Been having shoulder and neck pain. Got an MRI. Results came back today. Cervical degenerative disc disease and a herniation at C5-C6. *sigh* I am sad to see that I am falling apart at both ends. Thanking Spirit that my middle is holding up.

One Love,



  • I can relate. I have been a "lumby" for quite a few years and a few months ago I became a "necky" too. DDD, herniations and kyphosis. I've been struggling to not let this new Beast get to me and that is where this site has helped me tremendously.
    Not only for the medical info, but I think the connection to others who are dealing with these situations is a huge help.
    As my problems have worsened I have to listen to my body and rest, etc and I think if I didn't have this site to come to I would be totally lost.
    There are so many caring and helpful people here, and sometimes just a reply to your post and a "take care" can really help.
    Feel free to PM me anytime since we both got in the same boat maybe we can help each other.
  • I am generally pretty upbeat about my plight. Today has got me down though. Another thing going on. Perhaps we will get a chance to chat soon.

    One Love,
