Hi, everyone, I found this site some months back and have been receiving the news letters for many months.I have found it very helpful and have recently started checking out the message boards.I have quite severe disc degeneration,facet joint arthritis and osteoporosis.I have managed to keep pain free for a long time with exercise, physiotherapy and lots of walking .However at present I am having neurogenic pains in my legs which are made much worse by sitting for any length of time.I am very pleased that I am still able to pursue my activities. I find it inspiring to read of the way everyone else is coping with much greater problems.
By the way, I am 75 years old, widowed and live in Sydney, Australia. Margie
