This is the first time I am on Forum and didn't know where to put my problem, under which subject.
I am 55, female, have osteoporosis, degenerative disc, scoliosis, and stenosis of the spine.
My all joints are aching too so it is arthritis as well.
I have CT scan and X ray and there are all these problems but the last one the stenosis of the spine seems to be the worst. I tried the medications, cortison too, but it is not much of a help. I am seeing neurologist in 3 weeks time. I am hardly sitting in front of my computer now.
I would like to find people who have similar problems and to share advice and not to feel alone. When you talk to someone who has no idea what is bothering me, I feel so bad and sad and depressed....
So, right now, I don't have any particular question, I am still reading other people's posts.
I live in Melbourne, Australia and am on Disability pension. Sometimes I drive (on my better days), sometimes not. I love walking and used to be so good in yoga but now I can't do it.
I also have other health problems: bowls/diverticulosis and colitis does not allow me to take some of the medications (ibubrufen, neurofen, etc).
See what the neurologist will tell me.
I just want to feel welcomed and not alone.
Hope to learn more here and hope for the best.
