I have not found Dr. who can explain what is happening to me other than I have a deteriorating disc disease. I live on medication, and cannot stand upright without medication in me. In the past year, it is though every day of my life my condition is worsening. I fear the damage to my liver, as I have to children to live for, but everyday, I dont think I can take another day of suffering. My medication barely takes off the edge of my pain. I am 46 years old and have always taken care of my body, but now everyday things are so hard for me, to blow dry my hair, or go to work, walking, standing sitting, the pain is unbearable at all times and I feel as though shortly those things will be to much as I feel this has been so debilitating and still have no answers to what is wrong and what is happening to me. If there is anyone who can summarize or explain what is happening to me, or what I could do, Please help me. I cry everyday and there doesn’t seem to be any hope. Last year I had the unfortunate meeting with a Dr. who didn’t even bother to look at my x-rays once I mentioned that I cant walk or do normal things without the help of percocett, and treated me as though I were just a drug seeking addict. I need hope please.
