Well, I have osteoarthritis in my right shoulder as well as spondylosis. With that being said I have a lot of pain in my neck. I've tried almost everything; heating pad, ice bags, TENS unit, and lying on it. No relief.

I just turned 55 Monday. It started in my mid-twenties. I have had 4 TMJ procedures, 3 disk cervical fusions, and both feet have had surgery for bunions. I also had a bone spurs in my heel and shoulder which were removed. Now I have it in both knees, my feet and left hand. I am single and it looks like I will stay that way. I really scared about my future.
