Hi, I'm new to the forum. Hoping I'm in the right place for this! I'm 62 years of age, was diagnosed with Cervical Spondylosis in my 30's, and have suffered with back pain for most of my adult life. However, I have been fobbed off with the usual 'wear and tear' and made to feel like my pain wasn't real. I have resisted medications and used excercise and relaxation to help me cope. I now have alot of pain in most of my joints, especially hands and feet. However, I continue to live my life to the best of my ability and have long ago learned to enjoy the things I can do, and not to focus on the things I can't. It's lovely to be part of this group. Thank you.
