Hello, after a year of chronic pain I have been told I have cervical spondylosis. I am currently off sick and have been for a month. I have a specialist appointment soon. This seems one of the few places with an active community. I think I am going to have to resign from my job as it is so physical. Hello, hope I will make some friends here.

    Hi Lola

    Love your user name especially as my 3 year old grandaughter is called Lola. :grin: Welcome to the forum, you are right this is an active forum and many of us stay, weeks, months and years as it is such a great, friendly, helpful little community we have here. It can get addictive, just a warning! :lol:

    I am sorry to read that you have CS and have been off work for a month. It sucks at times, doesn't it? We all help, support each other as best we can and it really does help to be able to chat with people in a similar situation as oneself. It is also a place to have a rant, knowing that we will understand whereas people who do not suffer with arthritis, often have no idea of what to say/say things that are unhelpful and upsetting.

    Do join us on the different zones and make yourself at home, look foward to seeing you posting more,

    Elna x

    Hi Lola

    I joined the Forum last week and have found the community so supportive and friendly from the off! I came across the forum by accident through an internet search. I am sure if there are other people with your condition on the forum they will contact you. Meanwhile, all the best.

    (A good piece of advice I have noted from forum members is before you go to an appointment - write down all your questions and queries so you dont forget to ask some in the flow of the appointment - you can then check at the end before you leave!)
