I have lived with this for over 13 years. I spend most days trying to find relief. I had MRI's done in September. Between T2-L5 I have 11 bulging discs, at every level there is either a pinched, herniated, stenosis, DDD, spurs, atrophy I can't even remember what else. I've been getting injections about every 6 weeks, I'm in pain mgmt, weight mgmt and Pt. I only have about 30lbs to go. Every Dr I have seen tells me it's not bad enough. I do everything that is recommended. I can't even drive anymore BC I can't sit that long & I can't have the pressure on my back. Oh & I went from 5'9" to 5'7" in the last 2 years. Do I really have to continue to live like this?
