Most painful summer,with pain so bad I could not sleep, stand up straight. Tried many treatments. Medicate, massage, chiropqractor,Epidual/cordizone shots. Some helped for couple days, then right back to the pain. Not as bad as at first. I find if I will lay down on bed and rest back that it helps. But I cannot get my housework done laying down. Feel so clumsy walking that I am afraid I will fall. Use a walking cane all the time. Still looking for a better day.
