    Anyone here got spondylosis (degeneration of the spine) ???

    I was diagnosed with it years ago and I can do very little without my back feeling like it has snapped in half, the pain literally takes my breath away. I am worried how this pregnancy will effect it...scared I will end up in wheel chair or not being able to move at all :shock:

    My dad has it but he thinks he has his from wear and tear from years of working hard....I'm not sure why I have it, I have done a lot of heavy lifting jobs over the years so could be from that. I also have arthritis everywhere so that could play its part too....seems I'm falling to bits already :oooo:

    Mind since I got pregnant my arthritis has stayed calm, only get back ache when I do housework etc
