My MRI test results show lumbar levoscoliosis, disc disiccation, disc bulging and cervial spondylosis. The pain will NOT go away no matter what I try to do. Ice, Heat, stretching, walking. Is this a permanent disability or is there a cure? Will it get worse w/o treatment? What are my options? I have always been very active and have never broekn a single bone in my lifetime (so far - knock on wood). Ever since I allowed to have the steroid shots in my back, I hace gained an enormous amount of weight (30 pounds) within a week/week and a half. Bad swollen legs and numb arms/hands. My left side of my neck is so painful also. I need to know what I can do myself before I find myself at an hospital ER. You know they treat patients like me w/o insurance like dogs. I had insurance then it was cancelled with out notice. Iam trying to obtain another source of affordable ins but meanwhile am getting worse. Please provide info. thank you for your time and efforts.
