Since December , 2015 I have suffered from right sided back pain to the point that I have been house bound. I can't walk any distance without hurting, I can't stand in line at all and I can shop. I'm so depressed and am seeking medical help for that I'm worn out from hurting. I have a craft business but I can't get anything made because I can't sit for any length of time. Then I have to lie down just to get it under control. I need help
