I am wondering if anyone has the same problem I do. I was diagnosed with Facet joint disease about 8 years ago. Over the years it has just gotten worse. I have also developed bone spurs from L1- to S5 joints. I can no longer walk more that a few feet and cannot stand for more than a minute. The pain I have from walking or standing becomes excruciating to the point that I have even passed out.
I have taken pain meds and am talking them now, but I do not take a lot only 30mg morphine sulfate three times a day. I could double tripple, whatever and it still would never make it able for me to walk of stand.
I have had 18 radial frequency treatments, in which they burn the nerve roots, but the nerves grow back so I stopped. The best Spine Surgeon in the state told me surgery would not help.
I have seen exercises for strengthening, however, I cannot get on the floor, as I have one bad knee and one replaced knee.
Should I just jump in and cover myself with dirt, or does anyone have any thoughts?
Thank you in advance.
