Comment from: Indianrose314, 45-54 Female (Patient) Published: April 02

I have degenerative disc disease and now have found out that I have arthritic spurs all through my body. I have extreme pain and surgery is not an option. I am currently having injections all through my neck and spine. It works for a while but then the pain returns. I was looking for better options but, I'm realizing there aren't very many things I can do except take pain medicines and use ice packs all over. Good luck to anyone else going through this.

I had bone spurs surgically removed from left ankle 2 weeks ago. I'm out of the boot and trying to walk again. Stitched area feels very tight and requires stretching. I am having large toe pain and weakness and shooting pain on center of foot when trying to walk; like stabbing electric shocks. It makes me walk incorrectly. I sure hope things change soon because I have to go back to work where I'm on my feet all day long. Wishing I had never had the surgery!
