Hurt my neck 20 plus years ago and have been dealing with Fibro just about as long. Had an initial cervical CAT scan back then but all was normal. So after reading so much on OUR website about all of you getting MRI's I asked my doctor if I could have one just to confirm I was ok. Just a bad case of Fibro I thought. So the results come back with severe Osteoarthritis and bone spurs in my spine. Here I have been excepting Fibro was the cause of all this neck and shoulder pain and there really was a more serious problem! But I still do have a bad case of Fibro.... In my case, the arthritis is hereditary, but I have lived an exceptionally healthy life, great diet, good exercise, low stress, and normal weight. Lots of stres when it all happened. I never dreamed my spine was this bad. Guess I just wanted to put this out there as food for thought. Who knew? Anyone else get this diagnosis?
