arthritis in the neck
ldhdunn posted:
I was involved in an auto accident last summer. Was hit in the rear at 70mph, causing my suv to rollover several times. As a result, I sustained a fairly serious neck injury. X-rays indicated the presence of arthritis on all of the vertebra in my neck. I was totally unaware of it until then. Since then, I have experienced ALL of the symptoms, daily. Is it unusual to go from no symptoms, ever, to all symptoms, daily? And the pain is OMG, pretty severe. Just wondering if this happens to others.

Hi ldhdunn,

That car accident sounds like it was scary! As this article says, in most cases the onset of osteoarthritis is gradual, but trauma to joint surfaces (possibly caused by the accident in your case) can lead to OA. This slideshow about tips for living better daily with arthritis, this article about diet and osteoarthritis, and this article about coping with osteoarthritis contain information that you may find helpful in working to manage your pain. Are you working with your doctor to manage your pain?

Best wishes,
ldhdunn replied to atti_editor's response:
Thank you for the info. Unfortunately, no, I am not seeing a doctor. The other party's insurance money has been consumed by medical expenses and I cannot afford to see a doctor. Hopefully some of the information you provided will help. Thanks again!

I hope the information helps and that you continue to update us on how you are doing!
