Hello my name is Marcie I'm 46 and I have type 1 diabetes. I was recently diagnosed with facet disease, 3 herniated discs, stenosis, nerve compression, and l4 and l5 slippage. I'm attempting pain management as opposed to surgery. I've had epidural injections with steroids. It hasn't helped but the steroids have increased my blood sugar numbers. My sciatica is causing chronic pains down both hips. I sleep maybe 4/4 hours. Can someone please lend some advise?. My quality of life is becoming very poor.
