I am 51 years old. I have been diagnosed with many back problems, like stenosis, spondylolthesis, herniated disc, DDD, but most painful is a broken bone in my spine which allows two disc to slightly move back and forth. I take Duexis and Gabapentin daily. I have the stronger drugs but don't take it. The pain never goes away. I lost my job and have filed for disability. Has anyone suffered from extreme exhaustion after suffering conditions like this? Before any of this happened, I was going 100 miles an hour. It has been a year now and I would guess I am going 8 miles an hour. There has been no change in a few months now. Doctor says this is it, will only get worse as I age. My tasks are limited due to pain but the fatigue is the worse. Any feedback/thoughts are appreciated.
