My heart goes out to you. Nothing like pain to take the fun out of things.
My wife has bad osetoarthritis in her neck's facet joints and in the next few years will probably have to all her cervical vertebrae fused. She won't be able to turn her head and will probably lose her driver's license. She's not that old but it runs in her family. She's in pain 24/7 and sleep is really difficult. I don't know how she does it.
