I got a bad case of it....
I have been chronically depressed, and having chronic back pain for many years now. Last year I thought I would go back to work, after six months I just could not take the pain any more..the pain runs from my both sides of my lower back, and shoots all the way up to my shoulders, and it is not afraid to ever
let me know its there, and the pain is always there; The more active I become, the more pain that I am in, and now I am at a point of not really knowing what to do....
here is part of the xray report: progressive degenerative disopathy T10-T11 and T11-T12
1: I am getting ready to see an orthopedic doctor and see if I will have any
better options. Are there any surgery options? and who is to say after
surgery that something didnt go wrong, and I end up in even more pain?
2: or do I file disability; I have the credits, I am eligible, and I can only imagine
that is nothing more then a hoop-la bull with the govt.
and I am not even sure I would even get SSDI, it seems like DDD is fairly common....
What do you guys think?
