    Hi, Everyone..

    I've been away, overwhelmed with toooo many doc appointments the past few weeks..

    Newest diagnosis: Osteoarthritis in my spine -- looks like they call this facet joint disease? That in addition to the DDD and herniations and bulging disks. And the ever-present FM, of course!

    Please tell me how this might help my disability case: I'm unable to stand or sit for more than a few minutes at a time. At least now, there is an explanation..

    Have any of you had this added to your disability information, and does the 'board' consider arthritis as a debilitating factor?

    Please share your stories and advice..
    Brenda
