I have a few questions about my constant pain. I have been diagnosed with Lumbarsacral Spondylosis, Canal Stenosis in my L3-L5 which I also have bi-lateral stenosis in all 3 including my L5-S1. I also have canal stenosis at the T9-T11 levels which also have bi lateral stenosis. At the T10-T11 my spinal canal is 5.5mm in diameter and pressing on the spinal cord. There are many other issues that I am having with my lumbar region such as diffuse disc bulging throughout my lumbar with disc desiccation. I am only 33 years old and am in pain pretty often and now I am having pains in my neck which my Thoracic spine MRI showed advanced DDD at the C6-t1 levels, so to say the least I am quiet concerned.
I am currently working in the coal mining industry which is very hard on the body including the back. I am not sure is I should be doing this job or if I can for much longer because of my back pains. Any suggestions support would help as many individuals try yo sympathize but don't realize the pain I endure on a day to day basis. I have done Physical Therapy, anti inflammatory medicines, pain killers, and now 3 steroid injections which all help for a very short period of time but nothing for a long period of time. Thank you all for your time
