This condition Is caused by medical neglect. I feel safe to say so because I suffer from it myself. My pain started in my early 50's and it has only gotten worse and more widespread. I have been diagnosed by old farts as having 'stiff old lady syndrome' and the list goes on. Basically they tell me I'm old so, why don't you just roll over and die! These are all men who are at least 20 years older than me and have to be woken up from their naps when I come in for my appointments! I am a person who eats healthy and gets lots of exercise. I climb mountains and do extreme hikes, I live to move. Most of my troubles were caused by the medical profession which would be a story in itself. Today I'm sitting down and I can't even walk anymore. My one area of pain has now taken over my whole spine, my neck, my head, my middle back, my lower back and my right hip. I have been walking in pain for years but my legs always worked. This last week, I can't walk anymore because my lower back hurts too bad and my right hip seizes up on me. I don't go and see my 'doctor' because he's a 10 minutes and you're out guy and he just keeps telling me I'm old! This guy is at least 20 years older than me and in much worse shape! Non of my friends and/or family who are around my age have this kind of crippling pain and discomfort! So, that's why I say........ medical incompetence! Argh!!!!! ( Full Answer )
