Good morning all.  Hope your doing well.  My joint on my right hand is "screaming" at me this morning.  I went through all the heart tests and passed with flying colors.  Needless to say the focus of my symptoms, numbness and pain in my arms, spasms, strange pains going up the sides of neck, etc., will soon be discovered after and MRI next Monday.  He has also ordered a regular x-ray.  Like I said before I had c4-5 fusion two years ago.  The diagnosis code used for the tests was spondylosis with myelopathy.  I have read some on this and it said it cannot be prevented.  I can said I really don't want to go through another surgery but the numbness is gradually getting worse and the spasms more frequent.  I also have been getting headaches more and more.  Any suggestions on treatments other than surgery.  Any comments are appreciated.  Thanks Bunee

Hey bunee - sorry I am late in getting to this post, but I haven't been on much this weekend... Has your rheumy sent you to a Physical Therapist? I didn't know you get spasms with sponylosis, I have spondylitis and I get back spasms with that, but since I've been on Enbrel, I don't get them anymore... Hang in there and let us know how you are doing... Duck
