I've suffered for the last 8 years (since I was pregnant with my youngest) with degenerative disc disorder, but after being a real idiot and doing too much diy I have ended up having two separate days in one hospital and two 4 day long stays. I have had to MRIs now this year but the last on I had was 2014 which showed I had a bit 8mm bulge. I have a wide spinal column butbthe herniation had grown to 14mm now. The pain has been awful, I hate taking morphine pain killers as well as the other strong pain relief that a lot of the time. I am tired, I want to be able to move again and work. I find lying on my front most comfortable but I have started getting swollen hand and fingers if I stay that that way. (Hands up under mummy head) is this normal?also can anyone tell me please if you have had a similar experience. Did you need surgery? Did it work or make thing worse? What was the recovery time?
Has anyone tried alternative therapies and if so how effective? This has been worse the last 10 weeks or there about.
I need some real relief.
And I need i to know what my options are. I'm really distressed about things getting worse.
My pain has been sciatic with pain radiating down to my door on the right leg affecting my bum right down to my toes. I have tried citronella oil as a massage oil and it seems have helped a little, I've not had to take as many meds tonight. Has anyone had IDD therapy? Can anyone tell me what my chances are of getting over this.i feel desperate now and want it to get it sorted asap.
Thanks in andavance.
