Yes, I have been diagnosed with both in the cervical and lumbar spine.
In addition I also have herniated and bulging disks (cervial and lumbar) for about 10 years.
Thank you for the clear answer, I finally can get a a clear idea of what is happening to my spine.
Just one more question:
I've been diagnosed with "osteoarthritis". Rhematoid was ruled out. As I now understand it, OA will not improve but most likely will continue it's path of destuction on my joints as there is no cure?
The degenerating discs however have a chance of slowing down as this is "normal" in that it is part of the aging process?
