My back used to hurt fiercely, off and on. Last spring it started hurting at a low level, all the time. I finally went and got an xray, and then an MRI. For my age, my disks are in pretty bad shape. I have degenerative disk disease (which, most people do - just not this much at 41.) I have five bulging disks, of which two are torn. 3 lumbar, 1 cervical, 1 thoracic. My L5-S1 disk is barely visible in the xrays for the boney growth.
Anyway, I'm having physical therapy to build up my core muscles to support it better, so in theory it'll hurt less and I can do more. 1850 days ago
