Well it's tree days now and I haven't taken any pain pills just prednesone and My wife says I even look differently
(maybe more handsome).
The way the doctor described my problem. he said there is a blood vessel in the middle of my spine that was inflamed and irritated and it was being squeezed by the spinal column reducing the blood flow causing the pain. Apparently the pain killers were'nt necessary as I only took two the first day and have'nt taken any since. I'm still slightly aware of my back, but no pain and I can walk and bend with no problems. I haven't tried any heavy work yet, I'll wait until I finish the Prednesone. Good luck to you all, this has been a great relief.
