Nothing has worked and there is little to none being done to help my eccentric buldging discs. I am getting more and more depressed that I am having trouble walking at the age of 47. Have gained weight and have now been told I am diabetic 2 because of meds I have been given in the last year. Frustration is at an all time high.
