So, I'm new here, but certainly not new to back pain. I was in a car accident in 04 and have had lower back pain ever since. I was down for almost 2 mo in 06 with 2 herniated and 2 bulging discs. It's been ups and downs since then, but I hadn't had health insurance. As of lately, it's been bad more than good. I was just recently diagnosed with DDD and go for my first round of injections on the 6th. My MRI diagnosis is in my signature. So, how bad is it?!
