I know I'm not the only young adult out there dealing with a herniated disc and lumbar spinal stenosis. I was just wondering what some of you (under 25) did to relieve your pain. I am seriously considering surgery. I have done PT and tried muscle relaxers and anitinflamtories, with no results. This is horrible, my daily life is becoming a pain (literally) which is why I'm considering the surgery. I do not want to grow older, have a family and not be able to do the things I want to do. It is very important to me to live a life without pain. I had no previous injury, I honestly just woke up one more and felt like I aged 60 years. I just want to know how others in my position handled this.
