I have been living with lower back pain for nearly a decade. Most of this time just thinking it was some bulging discs. I recently found out through an MRI that I have Degenerative disc disease, spinal stenosis and Scheuerman's disease. I have been self medicating until recently. Now I am on pills that do mostly nothing. I am in pain most of the time, I get lucky to get four hours of sleep a night.
I am lucky to have three wonderful, understanding children and a very unique wife who gives me full support in whatever I choose to do about my back.
I am hoping that joining this forum and the chat will help me to understand and deal with this unstopping pain.
Thanks and I hope be around here for a long time.
