What causes arthritis on spine?

Hi, I have been suffering with neck pain for a couple of months now and was sent for an xray. I called for the results today and was told by the secretary that it says I have arthritis of the spine. I am only 36 years old and very scared. I made an appointment for tomorrow but dont think i'm going to get much sleep tonight if I dont ask what it means

I have studied your case and I think that you are having cervical spondyitis. In this condition there is nerve compression in the back.This is more common in person who works for long time in front of laptop and computers.
I would suggest you following.
1.Meet a physio and start neck muscle strengthening exercises.
2.Tablet Pregabalin M one daily.
3.Tablet Myospaz twice daily.
4.Volitran ointment local application
I hope these steps will help you.Let me know if there is any other followup questions.
