Hi everyone, am new in here and have so far enjoyed the posts i have read. I was told by my Gp that i have cervical spondylosis initially, and after my mri scan and an appointment with an orthopaedic doc. he explained that although there is a disc degeneration and a minor disc bulge, that it should not cause such pains that i have. Now my GP has refrained from including cervical spondylosis as an illness that i suffer. can someone advise me please :(

I also have cervical spondylosis and was told it explained the symptoms on the left but not the right, my GP doesnt include it when making a list of all my issues but puts down 'neck pain' as he says with the FM etc, you couldnt seperate the pain, nothing was going to be done so forget it basically. So I'm really sorry I cant offer you any useful advice as I've never been given any :(

Hi, I have the same, near the top of the neck, at times it feels like someone is digging hot wires into my spine, sorry don't know much that can help but find a hot bath sometimes takes the sting out.

What are the other neck problems you have Adele?? Is it anything like a sublux with fracture??
