Deg. Disc with stenosis from neck to lower back. Have tried all above checked with only slight relief from shots. Pain meds only relieve some of the pain. Currently told I needed fusion on C45, 6-7 as well; as L5-S-1 as well as other surgeries on surrounding discs. Change of lifestyle has slowed the conditions but have reached a point of losing mobility.
