I have back pain from various spinal problems. I have dgenerative disc problems in my upper and lower back. i have narrowing of the lower spine. I have osterioarthritis, and scolloious. I am not allowed to lift more then 5 pounds. Right now they took me off all my medications because of my health. I am not allowed to take any at all.I am in terrrible pain at present. Everything i do seems to make it worse. I even have a hard time sleeping. I have a tens unit, I take warm baths, I put ice on it, I do my own acupressure. i try to walk on nice days, I lay down quite a bit and it relieves it little and then I cannot get up. Is there anything I can do to help myself without medication. I am ready to go to the hopital because it is getting worse each day. I did aggravate it by trying to rake leaves about 2 weeks ago.
