Finally getting some sleep
I am 35 years old. I also have 3 children. I have been suffering with low back pain that at times radiates in both butt cheeks, down my right leg all the way to my toes. I saw a spine specialist just last month. He said I have degenerative disk disease. He felt it was too advanced for surgery, so I am in physical therapy. Specifically I am using a machine there called the Med X. There is only 1 in my area. This machine isolates 1 particular muscle in the back and helps you to strenthen it. I was not able to sleep either, lying down was extreemly painful. I slept better in a recliner chair. Sometimes I couldn't get out of bed, my bottom half was not connected to my upper half of my body. I understand what you must be going through. I did not think that physical therapy would help but, I must say that I have felt so much better, I am actually sleeping for the first time in months.
