Hi Out2kat,
I've spondylolisthesis and fibromyalgia, peripheral neuropathy and DDD. Not exactly a comfortable life, is it?
Do you have a doctor that is treating your pain? If not, get a Pain Management Doctor to help you with the pain.
I've no problems walking, sometimes I've problems getting chores done, which I detest, because it just feels a bit depressing. Do you feel the same way?
Do you have an understanding spouse or children? I may sound like a nosy Nellie, but these are important questions. You need a support system, like friends and family that care and understand how much pain you are in and how difficult it can be just to function!
I hope you can answer my queries as they are important questions indeed.

Hi alanamark,
I'm so sorry that you're having a difficult go of things. Have your family read your MRI and they possibly may understand why you hurt so badly! Also, drag your husband and your mum off to a doctor appointment with you, so your doctor can explain why your pain is so horrible and chronic. It may work to help them understand, it may not, but you must try, just TRY this, OK?
My heart goes out to you!
