I have DDD all over my back, 3 herniated discs in my neck and a bulging one in the low back. The low back bothers me the most. I'm 53.
I wish I knew the answer, I hurt all the time. The only things I found is ice packs and/or heat, not bending over too much or walking too long (which is hard). I'm trying to lose weight also, and not keep picking up my dog, lol.
I know there are medicines for osteoporosis and you can take Advil or Tylenol. My doctor said to some extent you have to live with it, but I have other problems also.
