I am seeking info on spine related conditions, as well as pain relief solutions and life management support, on behalf of my husband. My husband is 40 years old and has degenerative disc disease in his cervical and in his lumbar regions, and has an herniation in the thoracic region. In the cervical area he also has some bone degeneration that is causing impingement of root nerves as they exit the spinal cord. I am trying to find out if it is common to have such widespread degenerative disc disease. Everything that my online research indicates is that it is generally restricted to one area, but I think that this can not be the case. There must be other people who have experienced such a wide scope of this condition, and I would love to be able to find them. Additionally, I am hoping to find some support and info concerning the nerve damage that he is experiencing. Is this a serious issue? Am I making it more of an issue than it needs to be? Is it common to develop some nerve damage related to degenerative disc disease? Your input would be greatly appreciated.
