I Was Just Told I Do Not Have Spondylitis But Spondylosis. Does Anyone Have Any Information On This?

I Was Just Told I Do Not Have Spondylitis But Spondylosis. Does Anyone Have Any Information On This?

In my considerable research of fibromyalgia and spinal stenosis all of these terms seem to point to some type of arthritis. That's what I read about spondylosis. Not sure if this is helpful but hang in there. You're not alone.

Spondylosis is a condition of the spine which allows too much movement and sometimes results in fractures in the spine. I too am diagnosed with spondylosis. It usually occurs in the L5/S1 vertebrae. Not sure if it occurs anywhere else. In my case, I was born with the condition in the S1 vertebrae, it didn't fully form in the womb. Back then it was called Pars Defect. It creates other conditions in the spine as you grow older. Too much movement meant that my spine was weak in that spot and my spine whips with every jolt. It caused the discs in my neck to completely collapse on one side and the other side was completely blown out. I had surgery to correct this and I have discovered a whole new world of pain since then. It doesn't matter what life brings, EVERYTHING IS IN YOUR PERCEPTIONS. SO PERCEIVE EACH DAY IS GOOD AND GOD'S GOT YOU ❤️🙌

Did you get better pain relief on the higher dose of oxycodone? If you did then don't be pressured to reduce the amount you take, doctors have no idea what we go through and don't care if your in constant pain. Take whatever works for you. X

Tracy Allen, I smile every day 😊. I can't say that life on the planet has been kind. I also was told to deal with it and in my stepdads house, children were seen and not heard. My oldest sister and I did ALL of the work from the age of 7 years old (me 7 she 12) till we left home. She left at 18 and I got emancipated at 15 years of age. Married and a mother by my 16th year. Not a good marriage and he deserted me and our daughter before she was 2 years old. My childhood was a nightmare but I don't want to go into the details. Three bad marriages and two decades later I met my present husband. He is a good man and though I am not easy to live with he is kind and long-suffering with me. I am a serious person and he is hardly ever serious 🤣. It's infuriating most of the time but I have never met a heart like his ❤️🙌🙌🙌 and we are committed to one another. God is good to be so generous to me and I am grateful 🙌🙌🙌
