Hi

I just want to introduce myself as i am new today having just been diagnosed today at the hospital. I think it hasn't sunk in yet, bit of a shock. I am hoping to get advice and any information I can,
My name is margaret and I am 51yrs old, only just, my birthday present was my dignosis but never mind lol I have arthritus of the spine in my lumbar region or lower back but i do get some pain in the top of my spine, they only scanned my lower back for some reason. I wont go on as i dont want to sound boring but if anyone can tell me what happens next? i will be very grateful, i was just told to carry on taking the painkillers and to see my gp if i dont improve and may arrange physio. thanks marg :(
