After months of back and leg pain I was able to get an MRI. The results determined I have degenerative disc disease with a herniation of 5.7mm between L4 and L-5 with compression of the L5 root. Unlike a lot of the forums I have read, sitting is not my issue. Standing and walking for any prolonged length of time are very painful in my low back, hip (butt) and leg, all on the left side. Just wondering if anyone has had a similar situation and how they approached recovering.
