    Hi @caroline64 welcome to the community, chronic pain can be so tough to deal with.  Have you ever seen a specialist pain clinic?  If you've been struggling with pain for more than 12 weeks, there are many services that can help.

    hi caroline64. I have only just found your post. i suffer from degenerative arthritis in my spine and legs i also have scoliosis and spina bifida. i know how hard life is when you are in lots of pain! some days i am ok but still in pain! other days i struggle to walk more than a few foot.i have just been to the drs and it seems my spine is getting worse. it is now affecting my neck and i am having problems using my hands which is really frustrating.
