Muscle spasms, degenerative disc and joint disease. Interferon treatment done. Treatment for arthritis?

I have straightening of the spine cervical and lower lumbar due to muscle spasms, for 4 years now. The pain is out of this world. I have been diagnosed with degenerative disc and joint disease. My legs have gone numb and I have fell, 3x. I also have Hep C, which is dormit, I did the inferon treatment, which I think was bad for the rest of my body. I didn t have half of these problems until this treatment. And I have a nodule 22 mm, on my adrenal gland which has put my cortisol levels at 1.8. My shoulder is screwed up can barely use my right arm. I have arthritis and muscle spasm 24/7. I have some bladder issues also. This is just the tip of the iceberg. My neck itches but its numb.... I m in pain can someone tell me how all this happened. Could this have happened from the hep c treatment?

Thanks for writing to us.
The straightening of spine is often associated with acute pain. The main treatment is improvisation of the posture, pain killers, muscle relaxants and regular physical therapy under the guidance of a physical therapist.
