I've been told by every doctor it's not a condition surgery will help. Everyday it only seems to get worse. Some day's I can move around more. But nothing they have tried, or done gives me relief. The injections are short term, and then it returns with more aggression. It's right above my tail bone. For the past two years it's travelling up my back. Down both legs, feet and ankles. Constant.
