Hi, i am new too, and don;t think i have a lot to complain about
compared to some. my problems also come from two bulging discs, L3/4 and S1/5 bi-lateral. luckily they are not bad enough for surgery but i get a lot of leg pain, thighs and knees, and various pins and needles and buzzing, and heat sensation in my feet, i can't sit down for very long so am unable to work. it is very slowly improving, 18 months in now and still spend a lot of time lying on floor! tramadol helps a little but trying to come off it. trying a lot of natural supplements instead. I am 47 female. Doc thinks weak back due to gallbladder surgery in 84 - old style huge scar - and 3 c-sections.
