  • Hi,

    I feel your pain, ouch! I am 52 and went through many conservative treatments, but due to problems walking even 2 feet and severe lack of sleep due to flare ups for 3 to 4 days of horrible spasms, I finally opted for surgery. Its been almost a year after, I still have some problems with low back pain and am on chronic pain meds (no needles!), but I can walk better and no longer have those crippling spasms, and a "dead" foot.

    I wish you the best on your "spine" journey and hope you find some answers so that the quality of your life improves.
