Lumbar degenerative discs, steroid shots in facets did great...10 months of pain free. Then recurrance of pain..now degenerative joint of right hip also. More steroid shots in facets but didn't improve. Diagnosed with Lumbralsacral spondylosis without myelopathy. Midline low back pain and DDD lumbar.Results of diagnostic injections to quiet nerves....worse....now intense pain in spine and sternumarea /with medication Robaxin 500mg. Lower back once again painful. Unable to drive with medication. Seeing pain management doctor tomorrow to see what can be done now. Have Smoldering Multiple Myeloma but xrays show no lesions in thorasic or rib xrays...just an old fracture of fith rib.
