As indicated above I have multiple conditions that have caused my chronic back pain starting 35 years ago with a ruptured disc and continuing to the present. Initially I had to lie in bed for 7 weeks before healing occurred. Subsequent episodes were helped initially with epidurals and pt but nothing prevented new worsening episodes from occurring. I am presently experiencing excruciating pain and am scheduled for another epidural followed by pt.
