I have pain on my right foot, the last three toes hurt so bad I went to the foot doctor and he said I have bone spurs. I have had shots in before and it quit hurting for a while now it is back. It's been going on for about a year or so, I guess I have to go back and see what he wants to do to get it to quit hurting.

My bone spurs are located where my pelvis meets my hip bones.

I discovered today through MRI report that I have bone spur in my left leg. I am fairly worried due to the fact that I have polio affecting my right leg which in return has started degenerating my spinal cord, technical term for this is "spondylosis"! I am hoping my doctor will give me a good news for speedy recovery.

I have RA, lupus, cervical degenerative disc disease, and cervical dystonia. I have two spurs in the middle of the roof of my mouth, one spur over my back molar, two on my right shoulder AC joint that are so big they are visible, one in the palm of hand, and six in neck. They all drive me nuts. My neck was cleaned out in 2006 during disc fusion, and now there are six more. The oral ones prevent me from eating much and I am sickly skinny. I just turned 50 and miss my life.

I have discovered from an x-ray that I have bone spurs on my neck and shoulder. One day I woke up with a stiff neck, but very very painful. I could not turn my head to either side. Went to hospital and they gave me Oxycod/apap 5-325mg. to kill the pain. This happen in Jan./Feb. it's happen 3 times since. These can not be my golden years.

I have a bone spur on my right ball of my right hip socket. The tissue between the ball and the hip seems good, but the spur causes me pain. I believe I have osteoarthritis. I am scheduled for a hip replacement surgery.

In 1995 I broke a heel spur when exiting a small boat. The pain was excruciating. 2 doctors wanted to perform surgery immediately, and a third said he wanted to use drugs for now and then surgery. A friend called who knew a chiropracter and it turned out I knew him as well. He used ultrasound on the broken spur to break it up. I was on my feet in 30 hours, and he finished the job 3 days later which prevented a build-up of calcium in the bloodstream.

I injured my right shoulder. It was diagnosed as a sprain. Physio therapy exercises aggravated it. 38 months after the injury I received an MRI which showed the spur was pinching my AC joint, it was also diagnosed as a signal alteration which I believe was due to the tendon damage. I had an arthroscopy done and after the operation still had severe pain from what I assume was tendonitis. 30 treatments and 30 days finally alleviated the pain, well besides the severe pain I felt when lifting my arm up. I have painful ARC syndrome. So now I am left with chronic pain I believe is due to the delay in diagnosis and treatment.
