I am 61years old and have spinal stenosis.. I've tried the injections they did not work and one went down my left leg causing severe pain in my thigh ! I wear OTC pain patches and a back brace belt to be on my feet long term ...I have fibromyalgia as well ...moved to Fla last fall Dr here sent me to rheumatology Dr to get on some thing for the fibro so I am on gabapentin I am anxious to see if it helps with the nerve have a really good day I would have to take three pain pills and patches and belt but they don't want you on narcotics so I learn to suffice with morning exercises knees to chest and crunches patches belt otherwise I don't get the bed made till I'm panting with pain and have to sit...My mom suffered awful with it ...she couldn't stand straight up the last twenty years of her life now I understand why !!!
