Asthma as a kid, fine as a adult apart from really cold days make me cough a lot. Also the enevitable point when I'm older the lungs will tighten up more from the condition,

Suffer from a bad back every so often with pain in the lower region. Gets really bad trying to lift anything fairly heavy when it's giving me jip. Honestly cannot pinpoint when I damaged it in the past as I have always pick stuff up correctly etc.... And never been in a crash.

Last but not least, epilepsy. All be it mild thank god. That's something I am greatful for with it being not so serious that I don't need medication. The unfortunate thing is though that when I do have a seizure it's a right doozy and can take me out of action for quite a while.

Sounds like at the age of 41, I'm "surviving" better than many of us here... perhaps I should consider myself fortunate.

- mild groin strain (don't think it's a hernia) that I thought was getting better but seems to persist
- mild nerve pain in my left thumb joint
- mild nerve pain in my left shoulder (possible rotator cuff pull that is slowly healing, only taken a year!)

My brother has been suffering from Laryngopharyngeal reflux or similar for the last year, it's been diagnosed as a mild hernia, and definitely has not been pleasant. Appetite has been all over the shop, and he's probably lost about 3 stone in total due to under-eating.
Lie with passion and be forever damned...

Psoriasis - developed at age of 22.

Plantar Fasciitis - last 6 weeks , starting to wonder if its related to bike cleats or if its a consequence of the 40odd miles I walk per week at work.

Fused vertebrae 1&2 in my neck - sometimes painless , sometimes I'd rather remove my head with rusty hacksaw.


Sinus issues as yet undetermined .

Other than that , with my family history , I'll be keeping my mind open for anxiety issues eventually rearing their head.

I worked with someone with fused neck vertebrae, they had to move their upper body to look around as they couldn't turn their head. Are you stuck with that?

That's a full house you have there.

I have Laryngoharyngeal Reflux and I wouldn't it wish it on my worst enemy. It's the biggest ball ache I have ever experienced and I have it on a daily basis. Makes my anxiety/depression seem like a breeze in comparison.
Not something I suffer from although I used to suffer from chronic reflux and damage to my oesophagus causing problems swallowing anything from bread to water. The end result was to have a laparoscopic fundoplication. Not the most fun thing to have done as ended up on soup for about 6 months after the operation. Lost loads of weight though! Since then I have never had reflux - a 100% fix :D and after what I had been suffering, it was a miracle - I'd have hugged the surgeon if he hadn't died in a plane crash. Side effect can be annoying though... wind. Farting and burping are very necessary. Swallowing starchy food like bread/chips etc. can still be a problem though and since the surgery I have never been able to throw up!
Maybe worth asking the doc/specialists about the procedure?
Yeah, l know of the procedure but mentally not ready for anything like that at the moment. Time will tell though.

I feel for your brother. I was down to just over 9 stone at my worst a few years back. Looked a bit gaunt and unhealthy at the time. Added a stone and a half since then and have maintained it too. Does he eat big meals, anything acidic, chocolate, tea/coffee etc?

Not always , though it does cause lock up sometimes and occasional headaches from limited mobility in my neck (one of which is drilling through my skull today)

Such fun.

Said this before but whatever, ankylosing spondalitis (not arthritis), all the bones in my body are fusing together (calcium build up and degradation of joints), diagnosed 11 years ago and told I would only work 5! .... Still working, to do this I have built up a very strong resistance to pain through bloody mindedness, haven't been able to.move ny head foe 3 years, it is bent to the right and looking down, yet I still get up every morning and go to work, off with a cold are ya? Hmm, breath through my diaphragm as my ribs haven't expanded foe 5 years meaning I can't take a deep breath. Inflammation in my hips, feet, jaw (!) and wherever else, I'm like Samuel L Jackson in Unbreakable! ;)
