I have lower lumbar spondylosis. The nerve is not affected they tell me however the muscles are tightly adhering to the disc. So much so that I flare at every form of treatment. Physical therapy and vascular needling created so much pain I ended up in the emergency room. I am now trying cortisone shots but they are not making much of a difference. I was told by doctors that they don't want to perform surgery because the disc is not sitting on the nerve. The suggestion was that I could just be on pain medication for the rest of my life. Right now I lead the live of an invalid. I can't stand for more than a few minutes without being in enormous pain and I can't move around much without increasing the pain to intolerable levels. Has anyone else had this problem and are there any recommendations for treatment?
