Back pain for over 3 years

Started by larzzk121 on 07/14/2014 8:15pm

I've had back pain for over 3 years and haven't had much relive from anything. I have 3 bulging discs -2 upper 1 lower- degenerative disc disease, arthritis, pinched nerves to where it goes to my feet and makes them a little numb, my left arm bothers me to where it gets weak and can't do certain things sometimes. They say it's from my back. Everyone says that it's not that bad. So if it's not that bad why have I been having pain for over 3 years. I get horrible headaches and my neck bothers me a lot. I've been getting trigger point injections ever couples months and they aren't working for my back at all, they do work for headaches but I think they are not working as good anymore. I might be getting use to them already. It's hard to get a job that I can do. I've had different jobs that I liked and I couldn't do it anymore because of the pain, It got bad to where It hurt to breath. Not sure what to do anymore. I can't do the things I use to love to do, just wish I could do everything again. I'm only 23 and would like to do everything again.
