18 wheeler head on accident in 2012 , threw out lower back, chronic locked up in lower spine, can function yet for only a short period with out , pressure , pain and burning in lower back , hips, and leg. Diagnosed with spinal stenosis (chronic ) and severe lumbago

Have done physical therapy, epidural steroid, nerve testing, trigger point injections , taken pain medication since the accident

I have switched beds to memory foam , bought inversion machene , core exercises , stretching, heat, ice, tylenol. I can't sleep thru the night. If I go to bed at 11 pm I'm up by 4 am , back locked up , very uncomfortable , burning in hips and leg, have to walk it out , then I'm awake and can't get back to sleep. I'm cranky all day . Snapping at people, I have no energy and I'm constantly in pain...
