First of all, the x-ray report is not appropriate to make a diagnosis. Your wife needs an MRI L1-L5, preferably a 3T MRI. I realize that may not be available in your area, but it is worth taking a trip. The report suggest chronic degenerative arthritis. Pain comes from nerves being squeezed. There are genetic reasons why some people have this problem, however there are also dietary and life-style factors. Avoiding all lifting, and when you have to life, lift appropriately. Avoid nightshades (eggplant etc.) because they are inflammatory. Take Calcium and D3 supplements. And after the MRI get a consult for an exercise specialist. Exercise and muscle tone are very important. A TENS device and transdermal lidocaine patches worn no more than 12 hours a day may help with the pain, as will acupuncture. Opiates don't help much because the pain comes from glial cell stimulation, which don't have opiate receptors.
