    You may want to try lidocane patch on lower back. Also a tens machine helps my husband. he uses it before he goes to bed. I am concerned about your employer firing you if he finds out you have back trouble. I know, I know people hate lawyers but in my book that is one of the first things you must do after doctor. One who specializes in work place injuries. He will give you guidence and start documentation in case your employer acts like a satanic idiot. My hubby has lower back problems and neck problems. Traveling on airplanes for 30 years was the start. Plus a couple of falls. Physical therapy helped with his neck. At first he could hardly turn it to the right at all. Now much better. The docs dont want t operate now on back but he is checked regularly. The most important thing is not to delay getting your medical follow up and find out your legal rights. When I got rear ended in my little BMW by a big ole Ram truck, I banged my head on the side window and jammed my arm and shoulder against the side door. The seat belt saved me but did a number on my shoulder. Emergency room, Neuroligist, Lawyer. Months of shoulder pain and strange sensations like a snake twisting and turning under my shoulder blade. Most important you must must follow up with doctor. The best of luck to all my fig friends suffering from back pain. I hope our bushes and trees appreciate what we do for them. LOL Joyce

    My back is trashed as well, it is what it is, I don't let it stop me. My biggest but not only issue is my L5 has been knocked forward and down.

    You might take a look at an inversion table. In my case,an inversion table helps to decompress the discs and relieve sciatica pain.There are usually some used ones on Craigslist at reasonable prices.

    I got crushed between my motorcycle and a car that pulled out from a side street and stopped in front of me when I was 22 yo . A drunk driver hit me from behind in 2004 which damaged my back with a similar diagnosis as yours and herniated discs in my neck.

    Sounds like you are a fishing guru Mike. I get out when I can, yet it is few and far in between. Which is a shame, Colorado offers world class trout fishing year round.

    Rusty..

    Papa land is my dream. But there is many thing holding me back. Intact we talk last night and he is thinking to sell the mountains in Italy. If I were to take over I would create giant export farm and bottled water factory there. But with my back the way it is or may be after operation I am afraid I won't be able to do so

    Anyone want to buy about 100 acres of land in Calabria Italy? Very cheap ahaha

    Everyone Grazie for everything and all your inputs as well as inputs for others seeking advice and stories. It amaze me how many good people there are. I think I will go see the doctor to start REALLY find out what's best. I can't believe how scare I am about tis because I will lose my job once my employer find out I see doctor. But you all correct. I may not have life I wanted but at least I will walk. I wish us all great health and happiness for whole life's and to your family's as well.....

    Mr FMD, I wish that all Doctors had your views.
    Good man.



    "The longer the nerve root is being crushed by bone or cartilage ( if indeed, that is problem) the less chance there is for reversal of symptoms. "

    That is my predicament, now I have to live the rest of my life with cronic pain because I kept working and pushing my body till it broke. Not a pity party, hopefully a strangers way to motivate you to go get a referral to a neurologist.
    Do yourself and your family the favor and get it checked out. Good luck.

    Doug

    Neil, thanks for the input. I think we all agree that surgery is a last option. If chiropractic, physical therapy, subdural injections, weight loss, muscle training, NSAIDs, etc are effective then...great! It is true that a health care system based purely on making a profit increases the number of unnecessary procedures, whether surgical or chiropractic. All practioners should always strive to practice evidence based medicine rather than intuition or profit based medicine. Physicians who call in a zpak for a sore throat or a runny nose should be strung up by their stethoscopes. Chiropractors who profess curing mental disorders, asthma, diabetes etc with spinal adjustments should likewise meet a similar fate.
    As an Internist, my advice to Mike would be to get a good primary care doctor who is interested in listening to him as an individual and who can coordinate care with specialists for this potentially debilitating problem. The longer the nerve root is being crushed by bone or cartilage ( if indeed, that is problem) the less chance there is for reversal of symptoms.

    Wills,

    I return to the specialist next month.

    I have been treated by a chiropractor with incredible results. I have *always* been a skeptic, my wife completed residency at a well-known hoity-toity hospital and a family friend of 35 years is an orthopod. So chiropods were tripled cursed until 2015.

    In hindsight, I was ignorant and very prejudiced. I know better now and the relief I get is exceptional. I may very well still require surgery but not yet and as my spine is getting better aligned, my (sleeping, standing, and sitting) posture is better, and I am over-training my core to tighten my natural "girdle". As a result, the persistence of both my lumber and cervical symptoms has diminished. The intensity of the pain, however, is the same.

    Neil, thank you for the input. I, for one, am not offended in any way. If my surgery was somehow unnecessary, I can only thank my lucky stars that it worked out.
    It's appreciated that you bring a different point of view, and surely it's encouraging for any here who cannot afford to go through a surgical procedure for any of a slew of reasons.
    It's a bit of hope. Thank you.
    I'll be going to do some reading now
