I have grade 2 spondlothesis with spinal stenosis. The nerves coming out of the L5 - S1 area are severally pinched. I am in horrific pain from the lower back into the legs. I am not a good surgical candidate for surgery because of my weight. I am so sick and tired of taking narcotics for pain control. I don't like how they make me feel or the extreme constipation. But the pain is just so debilitating. I have tried injections and PT and they don't work. I go to a pain clinic and they tell me that there is no treatment that will help me without surgery and seems how that is not an option the only thing they can do is to try and make me as comfortable as possible with pain medications. Well given the side effects it causes with constipation and how they make me feel; I also suffer from a sensitivity to narcotic pain meds or any meds that affect breathing. This sensitivity suppresses my breathing and if taking too much I can stop breathing all together. Because of this sensitivity I am unable to take enough of the pain medication to really help alleviate the pain. It just makes it so I can tolerate it better, whatever that is supposed to mean. Is there any other method to alleviate pain in my back and legs? I can't sleep. Laying on my back feels like a have a gulf ball embedded into my spine, laying on either side causes the sciatica pain to increase making it excruciatingly painful to lay on either side for very long and laying on my belly only pinches the nerves and pisses them off even more if that is even possible. I need some kind of relief from all this pain because I am at the point where I just can't take it anymore. I need sleep, I need even if it's a few hours some relief from this pain. It's horrible and relentless. Please, I am desperate. I have been living with this pain ever since I was 15 years old (34 years) and it keeps getting worse the older I get.
