I am constantly in pain. Even 5 minutes standing and walking.. the sciatic nerves begin throbbing. I was born with grade 2-3 ( depending on how stressed the muscles are at any given time ) Spondy, and because of the pain, it has greatly reduced my activity. There are days when my legs are just to weak to get out of bed. Legs will give away and I've fallen so many times. My Doctors believe that my weight caused the spondy but I had the spondy way before the extra weight. It's a constant loop. Plus.. nearing the age of 50.. one more year to go and I'm at my wits end. I"m tired of hurting when I go out, or even try to clean my kitchen. I recently saw someone using one of the walkers with a seat and I got to thinking.. if I could use one of those.. I could rest when I needed, and be more active when I was able..
How do you all deal with chronic back pain? I'm on 2 pain killers now.. but it just isn't enough..
