Hello all, thanks for reading this. I just found this site and well feel the need to vent and talk with other people in the same situation as me. I am only 33 years old and have been dealing with severe back pain for about 15 years. I have disc degeneration disease, disc herniations on three levels, spinal stenosis and neurological problems down my left leg resulting in a huge loss on strength in my left foot. I have tried Steroid spinal injection(4x's) numerous MRI's and CT scans, chiropractic adjustments, spinal decompression, miliogram, discograms and a discectomy back on Dec of 05. I am facing my second surgery towards the end of the month. I have been to numerous doctors, some good and some bad and all very expensive. I am currently unable to work and really do nothing that I used to enjoy. I can not get excited by anything anymore, the things I used to love to do such as music fests no longer even put a smile on my face, I can no longer ride a motorcycle because I can not up-shift( my foot is that week) I am currently on pain meds and I have been for years now, morphine and tramadal are what I am currently taking. I am at the end of my rope, I see no light at the end of the tunnel only more pain.
