My L345 are herniated/bulging plus sciatica im trying not to take narcotics but I have taken 12 ibuprofen in one day with no relief. Been to Dr he said one of 3 choices......live with it, pain mgmnt or back fusion. Being that I've had a diskectomy and it only lasted a year not even considering surg. He said I have some nerve damage and will get worse. Is there anything I can do to relieve pain.
