Epidural worked for back and leg pain. Physical therapy and stretching help a lot but due to Osteoarthritis my back is still tight and painful. I just can't seem to get my hamstrings really stretched so they are very tight all the time. I cannot find a good sleeping position. I always wake up with a stiff back. If I sit too long my hamstrings really get tight.
