: today I got back MRI results and was told I have osteoarthritis in my spine all the way from the neck down. Said I have a slight bulging disk in the neck and at least one more farther down in the back. Said I had bony growths on the vertebrae and something about in my neck something was more on the left side and could be crowding things. Pinched nerves are pretty likely.
: I am only 47, isn't this a bit young for all this?
: And my second question...what to I do about it? Is there something I can do or change to slow the progression of this down some? What can I expect?
: Thanks in advance for any advice. I know nothing about all this.
I suggest you go on the internet and research the work being done by Dr. Alan Ebringer at King's University, London, on the positive impact of diet changes to your disease. He has developed the "AS Diet", and according to his work it does seem to help. Good luck.
