    Acetaminophen, TENS/Electrical Stimulation, Physical Therapy, NSAIDs - Anti Inflammatory drugs

Stretches, yoga, nerve massage and accupuncture have had the best results for me. I cannot get out of bed in the morning without first doing my stretches and lying with my yoga block under my back. My legs will not support me when first trying to stand up. Pain extremely severe and strength is at diminished capacity. I have worked all my life doing physical labor and loved my gym work outs. Thought that would help me in later life. I guess that was a very wrong assumption.
