| | Water Causing Pain
I am wondering if anyone else has a similar problem to mine. I have osteoarthritis of the spine and water causes extreme pain in my neck, arms and middle back area after exposure. By exposure I mean things such as taking a shower, swimming in a pool or being outside when it is raining. A few hours after being exposed to the water my neck, arms and middle back area start to get extremely stiff and the pain is not barable. The longer I am exposed to the water the worse I feel afterwards. I have asked several of my doctors what could cause this and the doctors have no clue. Most doctors look at me strange if I mention this problem. I have done research on this online and in the hospital library here but I have not been able to find anything at all on this. Has anyone else ever exprienced anything like this? I just find it strange that I would be the only person with this type of problem.
