... I read about spinal stimulation? , I have Dgenerative disc disease and the doctors want to decrease my patch and I have been on the same dose for 8 years.no increases. Same forever, if they are concerned now, should we not be looking for a more permanent solution?
Depends on the level of degeneration. Mine is about as bad as it gets, completely disintegrated discs L5-S1, my good pain days are 7+ on a 10 scale.
No matter what, the meds will only help a little. Most folks become less mobile when diet and low impact exercise (walking) are the way to go, as the circulation back there is already naturally low.
You can pursue medication related relief as I did, while the condition causing the pain continues to degenerate. Helping the body heal with nutritional actions and mobility not only helps the body heal itself, it saves your liver and kidneys, as your behavior/outlook.
