excruciating pain please help

edited 03/03/2015 - 8:02 PM in Upper Back Pain, Thoracic
I've had problems with my neck down my back to my lumbar and even sacrial joints. I'm only 27 years old and it seems to keep getting worse as I age. I've seen doctors who seem to just brush me off. They have said from my MRIs that I have bulging discs in my c6c7 t9t10t11 and l3l4l5. I also have something called dextroscolios and spondylyosis. Yet even with all these problems I can't seem to find a doctor to help fix me and make me better. I've asked for surgery and they only wanted to do injections and pain meds. After I couldn't afford the injections pain management refused to see me until I paid half of my balance. Only things that help with my pain is sitting for short periods laying fetal or walking smoothly as well as pain meds but those seem to be impossible to get unless I go to the er and I don't want to appear as a junky or addict so i try to not go often. The pain is excrutiating, in my neck it burns and aches between my shoulder blades. I can not stand for more than a half hour with out my lumbar and the middle of my back hurting. It's like a burning pressure achey pain. It gets worse and worse to the point where I feel like i m going to throw up. I get real weak to. I'm a machinist and I try not to twist or lift heavy things often but sometimes kneeling down or crouching does help eleviate the pain. I don't know what to do anymore though because this pain is just getting unbareable its ruining my life. Its hard to keep jobs because I often call off because I'm too stiff and sore and achey in the morning. If there is any advice guidance to helping me fix this problem please help. I love on Ohio around the Akron area. I really need a doctor who cares

    only offer injections?
    That would be the conservative route most people would hope for . S.o what is it about your current
    Medical status that your doctor feels this is right vs your desire for surgery?.?
