I have everything in the book !!! Except surgery ! I don't know what eslse to do for a relief . being suffering for the past 5 years. I saw about 7 neurologists! 2 Neurosurgeons, 2 chiropractors , therapies, acupuncture , heat and cold , tens units , exercises , 4 epidural injections , braces , different drugs : tramadol , hydrocodone , aleeve, ibuprofen 800 , and many more.... The only thing is surgery which I wouldn't want . my L4, L5, S1 are pinching the nerve. Hardly can walk and sit . Anal pain and irritation . use cortisone, fresh aloe Vera , vitamin E , and more . pain is in the middle of my lower back . sometimes it's like 50 pounds on my back . goes on my knees and behind the knees to my calves , my ankles, toughness in my foot and toes! I don't go out because I am scared on falling my legs are not too sturddy , and I have to carry my cushions everywhere to be able to sit ! You see... Life is not easy for me . I feel depress sometimes ! Need help and relief for at least one day !!!! I did the decompression at the he chiropractor ... Did not work . I took 4 epidurals ... Did not work at all ... I went to therapies did not work .. Acupuncture as well. The drugs did not work . No treatments so far have worked !!!
