Anyone in the same boat? Glad I have an NHS prepayment certificate. I guess I really should exercise, I have referred pain from the OA in my cervical spine. I walk everywhere.

    After five years of treatment I have just moved into a safer band of bone density, I do exercise but always have, I have not had steroids, my diet is good, I don't drink much coffee or any carbonated drinks, so where did I go wrong? It was all in the genes! OA has a much bigger affect on me, despite dozens and dozens of fractures, its not something I worry about.

    Sorry, I can't help but I am surprised if you do a lot of walking. Do you use a lot of carbonated drinks? I know they're bad for the bones
