hi newly diognosed with degenerative arthritis in my spine
hi i have recently been diognosed with degenerative arthritis in my spine, i also have problems with my discs and a bulge in one. after being told i had pulled a muscle for 1.5years i demanded an mri which showed the bones in my spine deformed etc. it has totaly changed my life and i am in serious pain all the time. im on tramadol and it still wakes me in the night. im only 21 and was planning on going back to education to be a nurse. but this effects my walking and everything. im so confused and sometimes feel guilty because i see so many other people saying how they can go to work and stuff and im not sure with my pain and mobility difficulties if i could, sometimes its because im not totaly crippled and people dont believe me and think i enjoy not working. is anyone else in this situation i mean what happens next?
