    So, I went in and got the results of my MRI on my back. Multiple bulging disks, narrowed nerve canal, and beginnings of arthritis in the facet joints. Guy basically told me donto expect to ever be pain free, and plan on the occasional bout of a flare like put me down on the floor for a week at the beginning of April. When can I get the wolverine treatment and just change the whole damn thing out?:mad:

    Heck, I have it every time I go to the parking lot! I already have 450 miles on it. ;)

    Thanks my friend. Just bummed it isn't something I can get a magic cure for...am scheduled for PT, so hoping that can help keep me at the "normal" pain level.

    I share some of this with you and feel for you.

    At least the seats are comfortable and are easy enough to get in and out of.

    Damn genetics, they suck. Or, at least mine suck. :p

    At least it has been more than 2 years since I was laid up with it last. Will have to be more diligent about getting in to yoga once pt is done. Need to be able to get back out on the golf course!

    Yes, me too. Some genetics, some the type of work I've done, and some just plain bad habits. The best I can hope to accomplish is keep in check at this point.

    At least my really bad flares are ugly a week or two long so far, and I have been fortunate that they are only every couple years for the ones that lay me out for the count.

    Acupuncture plus pt should really help stretching in the mornings to help all the joints loosen up. I wish you the best of luck with that battle

    I've had back trouble over the years. I go to a chiropractor 2-3 times per months and it helps me quite a bit. I feel for you and hope the pain subsides soon!
    Take care.

    I go for massage every week and chiropractor as needed. Typical is once or twice a month, but sometimes 2-3 times a week depending. Haven't tried acupuncture, not really a fan of needles. :eek:

    Neither am i but to get you back to top notch or a consistant 96% is worth more then being out for a week at a time.

    96%...don't know I will ever see that again. Wrong side of 40 to hope for that much.:confused:

    Ugh, I am so sorry to read this about your back. From your additional posts on this thread, it sounds like you plan on improving your lifestyle and becoming even more proactive in your care, so my wish for you is successful pain management!
