    Rest, Heat,

I am 91 years old and the doctor says I have sever spinal stenosis. I am in back pain 24 hours a day 7 days a week.I stll manage and force myself to get around and do things and I still also drive. My doctor will not give me any type of pain pills which I don't want to take anyway because of my age and the fact that I still drive. I've tried, heat, ice back brace, and all kinds of over the counter rubs and nothing helps me. Maybe you can give me some suggestions.
