I was diagnosed last summer with L4-5 herniation, L4 annular tear, spondolisthesis and foraminal stenosis. I also have osteopenia. Since that time I have tried a variety of treatments - NSAIDs, steroids, physical therapy, and a single steroid injection. Shortly after the steroid injection the pain clinic I was referred to closed and I'm now in the position of having to start all over again. The pain is constant - to varying degrees - most significant when standing and/or walking. I had limited and very short term success with the injection. I'm at a loss at this point. I desperately want some relief and some return of my quality of life. Should I try to find another pain clinic and give the steroid injection another try? Are there other non-surgical options? I work full time and take care of my 1 year old grandson in the evening so I am not interested in narcotic pain medication - I need to be on my game! But I also need some relief. I'm having trouble carrying my grandson and walking and standing for more than a few minutes is also becoming difficult! Any suggestions would be welcome.
