emoticon I sure need help and support with arthritis in lower back and all its issues.

I have L4,L5, S1 and S2 problems, herniated disc, pinched nerves,stenouses?, and arthritis. It is a real problem for my exercising with flaring everything up. I know if I don't keep moving it will only get worse.

I want to start Aqua Aerobics, but am having severe headaches and dizziness. Have MRI tomorrow. Not sure if it is migraine or rebound headaches due to Prescription pain meds and over the counter.

It is pretty nice in North Central PA so may go for short walk, if I can walk a straight line !

has anyone had laser surgery for back problems? I can have it, but medicare doesn't cover the facility so it would be $20,000, but less invasive.

Thanks emoticon emoticon

    DH has spinal degenerative disease. He is making a few dietary changes because he really doesn't want surgery. Mostly IMO he is trying to add coconut oil to his diet. He won't give up carbs and sugar.

    I want you to read a blog. This Maria, a nutritionist, had lots of wonderful info on dealing with many health problems through diet. It is 1 a.m. and I'll find it in the morning (and post it on the Atkins team thread).
