well, I have 4 cervical herniated discs and others bulging. My thoracic 3 and 4 in lumbar with l5 s1 bone on bone and my hips are bad shoulders wrists and feet. Anyways my head feels so heavy and my body also and I can't get motivated to do anything. The main reason to stay active so I don't get even worse and I have 2 dogs that need daily exersize. I just need to feel believed in. I push thru day by day but lately it's been hard. Anyone feel this, I'm sure there are.😁👌🕯️🌺❤️❤️

      I used to go to physical therapy and I would get traction for my back and massage for my neck. It worked but I haven't gone back in a while.

      I was told by y my surgeon that if i get surgery on my neck that he would fuse c3 thru c7 and I have need fusion surgery on my lumbar l5-s1 is bone on bone and my thoracic spine is bad also but I am too scared. My thumb is probably going to be my first and my hip is also causing woes. Sooooo, just venting.🤗

      I just don't know how I keep going. I have no life but severe pain for the last 8 years and it just keeps getting worse.

      yes, that comes with the neck issues. It stinks. I used to have one of those inflatable neck stretchers...it helped for a while but got old. I hate things around my neck tho so I can't use it very long

      Yes I have degenerating discs in my neck and lower back. The pain is nonstop, but wakes me up at night. My neck burns and I am unable to stay laying down. It stinks.

        @RedWhimsy wow, sorry. I know, I have to lay on my back all night or whenever I lay down and tuck the pillow snug under my neck. My hips and sciatic nerve are what hurt the most and my thumb(arthritis). I have been getting headaches lately from my neck though
