I am reading about so many people suffering from this pain, its so disheartening ! i am too in the same boat, but up until this point i did not know that this pain might last forever!! and instead of focusing on a cure i will have to focus on the management of it? I am 33 and have a possible bulgin disc on my lower back, have not had MRI yet, just xrays, but it has been 7 months with pain, sometimes gets better and sometimes gets worst, it is preventing me from working, i am a jeweller and sit down on my bench for hrs a day ;( i love what i do and this is now getting in the way of it ;( for months I have not being as productive as i need to be in order to even be able to pay bills and daily expenses... my partner complains about my back complaints and its so unsuportive, he does not understand the level of my pain... its been rough. i feel very alone most of the time the realization that i might have to live with this is deeeply painful, I am scared to share it with my partner as I know he will think I am doing it to get attention or sympathy ;( ... sleeping is painful, standing is painful, sitting is extremely painful, the pain spreads as other muscles get tight, the tratements are so costly i cannot afford it! The situation is so emotionally stressfull. Reading some of the stories in this forum made me realize I am not alone though, and i can see many ppl managing and keeping their heads up. I admire you all so much. Thank you for sharing your stories
