Hi Mary and Roy,
I have DDD on 7 discs, 5 on my cervical, and 2 on my lumbar.
Though my 7 cervical are fairly new, and I have not seen anyone about that, I know the doctors that I did see about the 2 lumbar one, gave me no help either. They brushed it off as if were nothing. My personal research has told me that DDD can be and is more painful than herniated disc some times.
I guess the only thing I can suggest, is keep looking. Don't give up! I believe that if you keep trying and looking eventually you will find a doctor who is willing to help. Don't get disappointed by just one doctor.
Get your husband to a pain management center where they can help him get the pain under control so that he can continue to search.
Good luck to both of you, you will be in my thoughts and prayers
Maria
