I have lots of bulgind discs, stenosis, etc too. I had nerve blocks for sacroiliitis and they were not worth the effort or pain. They made it worse in fact. Since then I have had an epidural, which didn't really help, but wasn't that bad pain wise and may be worth trying. I've also had botox in the neck, which was almost miraculous in how much it helped.
Pain meds will only help to make the pain tolerable. Not much more than that.
