So for several years now I have researched, radiographed and been an all around active patient. However, I get very frustrated that when I put into different search engines "multiple cervical degenerative disc disease" or some variation of that, I get nothing on multiple levels of degeneration. It seems to be somewhat rare to find people with four levels of degeneration and that's a good thing. Lord knows I wish I didn't have them. But I do wish there was more information out there for those of us that do. It can be very difficult to know when what you are feeling is normal for your condition when you don't know anyone else that has it. I'm not certain if anyone reads my blogs but if they do and they have a similar case PLEASE let me know. I am happy to share the wisdom, info and random facts that I have learned in dealing with my multiple level cervical DDD. I hope someone can return the favor. Or just let me know I'm not alone. :)
Data can be hard to find on my particular condition and clinical trials usually look for no more than one level of degeneration. I'd also love to know if someone has seen something I have missed. A treatment opportunity that I have not explored.
But even if no one reads this or has this or cares (lol) I feel better having gotten it off my chest.
