Hi all! I am 27 and have been diagnosed with Degenerative Disc. L4 & L5 are completely dehidrated and bulging and I have minimal bulging in almost all my discs all the way up my spine.
Both of my legs, hips and knees ache daily. Some days worse then others. I get horrible muscle or nerve or something spasms in my back. When that happens the pain is debilitating. I can't move or get out of bed or anything on my own. Some days the pain gets so bad my husband has to help me put my clothes on.
I have had 7 cortisone shot and found no releif. I have also had an epidural and a nerve block. They both gave me releif for about 8 - 10 days.
I am now completely lost as to what to do next! Surgery terrifies me.
As I am fairly young for this, I don't have anyone who really relates to me. I can't tell you how excited I am to find this place!
