something new 😵

Just found out I have spondylitis and narrowing of my discs in my spine and other joints so that's what all the back and knee pain is. It's bad enough coping with the dreaded fibro but this back pain has knocked me down. My mobility is so important to me and that's getting a challenge. My whole life I've been active and now I'm only 46 and feel like I'm 90. Everyday I pray for a change for the better but I'm just getting worse. I'm usually a very positive person. My body won't let my heart do what it wants to do.

Panther lady, I have the same things.... I'm sorry that you're having difficulty. Do your very best to keep that positive attitude, it will help pull you through. I'm glad you are here in this community of really awesome people who are here to listen. You will be in my prayers.

I'm so sorry Pantherlady. I'm 53 and have felt so old for almost a decade. It seems there's always something else. Just today my ENT did a hearing test and I've lost hearing in both ears, bad enough to put me in hearing aids. Just not ready to go there. I didn't think I'd had any change. She also said the cilia hairs aren't as receptive to stimuli so she wants me to talk to my neurologist. I'm trying to stay positive but like you its frustrating. I'll keep you in my prayers. 😃
