    Not Improved
    Oral corticosteroids, Ice, Cortisone Injection, Rest, Brace, Heat, Ultrasound Therapy, TENS/Electrical Stimulation, Epidural

At first the shots helped, but after several years not so much. I go to bed with ice . I use opiates for many conditions and diseases. Surf

I need a 3level fusion, but a no go because of my health. Now we're talking about a stimulator implant. I'm in terrible pain.
