I am only 29. Could I have degenerative disc disease? I have had neck pain for over 4 years that is constantly there every single day. Is it possibly that I could have degenerative disc disease this young? .
There are a lot of structures in the neck that could be the source of pain: discs, other bony joints, muscles, and other tissues. Whether you could have degenerative disc disease doesn't so much depend on age, but on experience. If a neck has experienced a lot of wear and tear, such as from extreme sports, military service, high-velocity injuries, or overuse, it may develop the same kind of problems seen in older people. Other medical conditions, some medications, and family history can also contribute to "premature aging" of the neck structures.
Signs of a dangerous neck problem include weakness, muscle shrinkage, or sensory loss in the upper limbs; funny walking, jerky limbs, and jumpy reflexes in the lower limbs; bladder control problems; or symptoms that are new, severe or unprovoked.
A visit to a primary care provider (and possibly a consultation by a neurologist) can help exclude dangerous problems, and can help determine therapy to reduce pain and progression. ...Read more
