Hi i've been suffering arthritis for about 15 years and have pain like most of you every day. it took years to get a full scan and was told that i had degenerative arthritis in back and base of neck. rare times i get a dizzy spell and given neck exercises to do every day.
I keep leaving jobs because of these problems and now work part time for boots.
Anyway last time i had a bad spell for 6 months i went to my doctor in herne bay, and was told
(What am i surpposed to do about it! you will just have to live with it)
I was taken back by this and went to another doc but had no help because they close ranks. I dont know what help i can get etc. and prescribed Solpadol and Dicloflex.
Which helps very little. Very deppressed with this and like most of you worry about the future. When im off work i go on incapacity then sign on again to look for work. and treated the same as the fit.
