I just found this message board, need somebody to talk to. I had an MRI done yesterday and my md called this morning saying I have DDD 3 discs. His advice, ibuprofen... I am so frustrated because he doesn't understand or believe I have pain so bad I can barely walk. I drag or limp on my left leg and have sleep in a recliner some nights. I am 50 years old,and live my life like I'm 80 because of the pain. I just have been crying and crying about this.
