I Have not been diagnosed yet,but have done alot ofresearch. I have had alot of back problems and neck problems over the years.Indecember I fell in ther ice and snow and haven't been the same since,been on pain pills since then. I also was diagnosed with fibromyalgia 2 years ago. Everything usdt keeps getting worse. 2 weeks ago I spent 3 hrs at a spine clinichaving additional x-rays added on to all my cat scans7 mri'setc. They never came right out& told me I had it but they asked if I have ever been tested for it,which I hadn't yet.Am waiting to get in to my rheumetologist and have all record forwarded to her. Everthing you mentioned about yoursymptoms are almost identical to mine. Even the pain pills aren't helping much. Iam tired and hurt and am getting stiffer it seems by the day. I feel for very much having children to raise,it must be very difficult. i am 50 and my kids are grown and can't imagine trying to care for others besides myself. i will be totally surprised if I am not diagnosed with this. Do any of your other family members have this or similar? Because mine doesn't and it seems from everything I have looked at ,thats common. There is arthritis and osteoarthritis but not this. This is all happening so fast,it scares me! I noticed you posted this last year,how are you doing now? I hope you are doing well!! Take care!! this is my daughters computer I am using and I don't know her E-mail address off hand.
