Mary, What is the outcome/update on your symptoms? Your symptoms are so similar to my own. Im 36 and also diagnosed with DDD. If I sit too long I get up walking like the Hunchback and it takes a few minutes to work itself out. If I sit on the floor Im doomed it's worse.
My doctor gave me Celebrex but thats all. I am beginning to hurt more often, and my hip (hip flexor area) hurts deep (like more than a muscle hurt). I really need to make a new appointment so I can see if there is anything else I can take for the aching. I never knew you could get arthritis so young. It's awful.
I love to exercise, and to work in my garden but sometimes it's too much for me and I have to stop.
Anyway, I would love to hear how you are. I hope well
