:''( I have had DDD and osteoarthritis since 2003 have seen many doctors for this condition in my L4,L5,& S1. They all want to give me Loratabs and predisone, that of course do not work. When I tell them they put me on multiple other narcotics that do not work either. I have no insurance and no quality of life per say. I cannot walk, stand or sit. I'm 47 and cannot even pick up my grandbabies..I went back to college this last year and graduated with a total 4.0 GPA thanks to very understand professors. I want to go to work and I am about to see a new orthopedic who specializes in back disorders. How can I get him to really help me???
