Why nervous? Well I don't usually do forums for a start and secondly I'm very much a don't like to make a fuss kind of person. I'm also very aware that there are many people whose arthritis is worse than mine and so feel a bit of a fraud.
A year ago I went to my GP with a clicking neck and shoulder pain and in July was diagnosed with cervical spondylosis which was putting pressure on my spinal cord and nerves. I had surgery at the end of February and while it has sorted the muscle weakness in my left arm and shoulder
still left me neededing to use a walking stick and has done little to resolve the pain
. I'm due to start physio next month and plan to return to work in September.
I suppose I just feel a bit anxious, wondering about the longer term ... work, hobbies etc.
Sorry to ramble on, and I don't usually feel this sorry for myself. Just one of those days.
