New diagnosis


Hi, I am new here, I had xrays of my neck and upper spine 2 years ago, my doctors receptionist told me it was wear and tear, I recently saw a locum at my surgery and she told me I have severe osteoarthritis, I also have terrible problems with my right hip which apparently is all connected to my spine, I would welcome any feed back from anyone else in a similar situation, several people have commented that I am walking crookedly, and I can see in the mirror that I am now crooked, I am hideous embarrassed and in a lot of pain.
