I am 57 years old, and have severe degenerative disc disease in my lower to mid spine as well in my cervical spine. I have bone spurs etc..,
I am told I need neck surgery and then back surgery.
You name it I have tried it to get relief. Physical therapy didn’t help me. As well as facet injections, other injections.
I take minimal pain medication
The only thing that seems to help me is , I have an electric mattress pad, that I lay on and I have an electric blanket that I keep my legs covered with.
I understand when you say that you only get 2-3 hours a day. I am the same way.
I haven’t scheduled surgery due to other serious health issues that need to be dealt with
I wish you the best and pray you find some relief
