Have a problem since i was 18 got better hurt again at 25 had surgery and had no problem until I fell again and reinsured at 52 had treatments and another surgery and been in pain ever since. The stenosis had developed after all the injuries and surgeries. Now in pain management just to live without being totally miserable all the time. Had to quit work because I can't sit for more than 15 mins. Can carry anything with any weight and can't rest because can't sleep. Nothing else can be done just have maintainance drugs now.
