Hi all, I dont normally post in this forum but in the last 6 weeks or so I have had some of the most terrible lower back pain. I do have heart diease with a pacemaker implant, multiple sclerosis and another neurological disorder which lowers my blood pressure at times to the point where I pass out. So, thinking I may of injured my hip in some way during one of my last low bp spells I asked my MD to do an xray. This was only of the pelvis area and showed arthritic changes, and degentrive joint diease in both hips. My mom has djd in both knees and hips so for this I was not too surprised.
However, my pain is so great I cant sit on my bottom for more then 30 minutes without wanting to cry. I tried physicial thearpy but I do exercise every morning and pt didnt help with the pain. So, my doc ordered a CT Scan of my spine monday which has shown degenerative joint & disk disease.
I am now to be starting a course of injections but I am unsure what exactly they are. I just want the pain to stop. Has anyone here done these spinal injections or have djd of the spine? I am just wondering what to expect and what others experiances were with this procedure and disorder.
Thank you for reading to my rambling
