Juvenile Degenerative Disk Disease

My daughter has been suffering for about 2 years with Juvenile Degenerative Disk Disease. She is 18 years old. She had to quit school due to her back pain and chronic migraines. Paige underwent a neural decompression in October 2014 with very little relief. She is in chronic pain and is on a 50 mcg fentanyl patch. Paige tried to take her life the end of July 2014 to escape her back pain. Luckily she is ok but is still in terrible pain. I also am finding doctors telling her it is all in her head and she should not be in this much pain. We are heading back to Minneapolis next week to see the Doctor again and talk about other options for her. I would love to talk to others who are going through the same thing. We are desperate to get Paige's life back ! Thanks
