: I have read several case histories of Cervical Spondylosis. I seem to be the only one that has diagnosed this condition. I have been on a medical rollercoaster and live in a town known for their state-of-the-art medical facilities. My symptoms are the same as others say - debilitating neck pain, left arm pain that almost feels like there is a giant rubber band cutting off the circulation, and of course sleep deprivation. I know I have degenerative changes and disk herniation but no mention of spondylosis. I am so proud to read comments from people who are suffering more than I am (if that's possible). Trying to find anything that makes my pain manageable is like winning the lottery. I am a working school teacher who is also in graduate school. If I do not find medical answers soon, I may have to give up everything. I am a 45 y/0 female and life has to be better than to endure this pain. By the way, before this, I was a very active female. For 20 years, I have weighed appx. 115 lbs. Since this condition has invaded my body, I do have the energy to exercise and have gained 15-20 pounds. I would gladly weigh 1000 pounds to have a normal, pain-free life. If there is anyone who can tell me what to do next. I have gone through 8 weeks of physical therapy without relief. I would like to avoid surgery because of work and grad school but I cannot go on this way. I would appreciate hearing from someone.(em:AuntRuthieFlo@aol.com
