I was diagnosed with this 9 years ago. Mixed opinion from GPs - some think it's only to be expected in people 55+, others are sympathetic and believe it's serious and painful.
Does anyone else have this? I was in a bad car accident where my spine was badly injured when I was 16, so it's not (only) age-related. Anyway, I'm on strong co-codamol which has been ok for about 5 years, but now I can't walk without pain and walking uphill is nigh on impossible. I have a phone appointment with my understanding GP on
Monday and will ask if I can have an MRI scan (I'm bearing in mind that Covid is the priority and I am not) and if there's stronger pain relief.
If anyone has had this can you help me with any advice? I did try Butec patches last year (change patch weekly) but after about a month, I was allergic to the glue so GP said not to use them anymore. I've had Tramadol but Co-codamol was better. Any DDD sufferers out there who can relate to this?
