I had a dx of sciatica and had pt for that then I was referred to a rheumatologist. After an

MRI, she diagnosed spinal arthritis. Her referral was to find a pain clinic. Most pain clinics do not accept Medicare and I do not want to take opioids. I am working on losing weight and accepting that I will not be cured but hopefully I can be better.
