Back Problems board

Tracy, hope the Lyrica helps!!!

Two more weeks of work, I can do it I can do it.

Interesting you should describe your DDD that way. When my neurosurgeon saw the MRI he didn't see direct nerve impingement so he said there was nothing he could do, even though the CT scan showed bone on bone. When I left him and went to the orthopedic surgeon that's exactly what he said..bone on bone causes inflammation and pain in a variety of locations and is no less painful. Course now it looks like my body has cooperated and is giving us the old nerve impingement.

Today I added Vicodin to the mix since I don't have to work. I don't know how much it helps, I still can't straighten my back when I walk and the sciatica pain is still awful. I just don't care as much.

Take care, all of you. We WILL get better.
