Degenerative Disc Disease

New here. Suffered an injury 20 yrs ago to my neck. Been through it all…PT , injections, pain clinic, chiropractors, acupuncture, rhyzotomy…along with c-4 thru c-7 severely degenerative, migraines, I’m scheduled next month for 3 tier fusion. Any advice? Thoughts? I’m scared 😳
Hello everyone. I have just joined and am just looking for support with my condition. I have had L5S1 problems for many years, but finally had it fused in October of 2020 and the pain level increased enormously. I can't believe it hurts this much and Drs. cannot find anything wrong. I have been back many times and the MRI, CT, and Xrays all show a perfect fusion with no further degeneration. I had multiple injections above and below the disk, as well as in it, and no consistent relief. They seem to think the pain is all in my head, but that doesn't explain the pounding pain when I walk. It is like someone is hitting me in the back every time my heel strikes the ground. I can feel it up in my jaw too. I don't know what to do. We tried multiple medications like prednisone, gabapentin, neurontin, lyrica, Celexa. Nothing really helps with the pain.
