I'm really depressed because I'm in constant pain day and night with severe neck and back pain, I've been like this for most of my life, it started when I was about 13 or 14, all the doctors ever did was to give me pain killers, but last year my doctor sent me for an MRI scan which showed that I have Degenerative Disc Disease, which means my bones are crumbling, the doctor sent me to the hospital where they gave me steroid injections in my spine, but it didn't help, her thinks now he will have to replace 3 or 4 discs in my spine, but the base of my spine is really bad, but he told me that it is beyond repair, so Ill have to suffer, my drug cabinet looks like a chemists, and I'm only just turned 50.

I'm so sorry. I am prone to hurting my neck and shoulder from sleeping wrong. I can't imagine being in pain all the time. Every time I hurt my shoulder and neck it rules my life for at least a week and I am just miserable even with the pain meds. Thank goodness my problem seems to subside after a time. Take care of yourself and try to find ways to get your mind off the pain. I hope things get better for you...

Hang in their man.... Pains, aches.....etc... all part of life, as I'm sure you know....<br />
Keep your mind right, keep a good diet, try to exercise and live well....
