osteochrondritis of the spine
Hello all,i wondered if anyone could help me please,im a 27 year old female who has just been diagnosed with osteochrondritis of the spine that is affectiing the t6-t9 level of my mid spine,after having an mri scan and xrays.I was in a car accident 3 years ago and suffered with neck,shoulder,hip and spine pain.The neck was dianosed as whiplash and a budging disk and i have rotar cuff tears in my shoulder which had to be operated on.The doctors kept telling me that the pain in my mid and lower spine was whiplash and it would settle but this was not the case as i found out.I suffer with chronic pain in my mid and lower back and have servere muscle spasms and sciatia type symptoms down both legs.I was wondering if anyone has this condition or anything that sounds similar as im really trying to understand it.I have been to see an osteopath and a specialist at my local hospital but again they did not really explain what this condition or desease is.I also suffer with cracking joints in my hips and sore knee joints and also have pins and needles and vibrations in my legs and hands.Can anyone help please or do they have any informattion..thankyou so much for reading.
