Hi gingerlou -

Sure sounds like arthritis to me. Have you seen a rheumy lately? Are you being followed for the arthritis that was diagnosed in your neck? What about meds? - Duck

Well what kind of treatment is that? Holy cow! I'm so sorry. Can you go and see a different doctor and get a second opinion, doesn't sound like the dr. that you went to see was very thorough... Walking and to keep moving is good, however, if it is progressing, which is what it sounds like it's doing, she should probably do bloodwork and a whole new work up.... Good luck to you and please keep us posted on what happens - Duckl
