Just discovered U have osteoarthritis in lower back. Has been hurting for 10 yrs. Was told it was scar tissue from an abdominal surgery 17 yrs ago. Pain Dr. Wants to burn nerve endings, stimulate nerve endings. I have fibromyalgia for 18 yrs.. Not wanting my nerves messed with at all. Took predisone for crowns disease many years ago. With many side effects. Not open to thus either. Would consider gels. Chiropractor does electrical stimulation with great success. Not long acting however. What are my other options. Gave been reading about stem cell therapy.
