    I have been in pain for 25 years . I have been to orthopedic, sports Doctors, chiropractors, message, decompression, swim therapy and balance therapy. I have 7 spurs in my neck, L4 & L5 problems, degeneration of spine, bulges and pain across back, tailbone both hips, down butt cheeks and down to knees on both legs. sometimes pain so sharp I hollar, have had at least 5 or 6 cortisone shots. Can't sleep because it hurts on back,
    and both hips when I turn over. Doctors say no surgery will help. I can't take pain pills and runs don't help. when I was twenty zi had a shadle block to have 1st. child. I was numb from neck down to feet for 12 hrs. This back pain has hurt off and on for 50 years. It has been steady pain for about 20 years. I have been to alot of des. but so far nothing helps. I have implant in.my hip to control bladder so I can't get MRI but I did get the test where they run something through my body while they took pictures. that has been at least 10 or more years. It was called a Mylogram. I wish someone could help me, it hurts to sweep, make up bed, mend over, get out of chair or just turn from side to side. I do have some good days but not real often. My husband has had 3 back surgeries, one at Duke and he still hurts some. I know I will be 70 my birthday but I would just like to be out of this much pain. Thank u for listening
