    Unless you are a princess, I trust that anyone over 40-50 yrs. old has back problems!I had surgery for mine 18 months ago, & I'm in worse shape than before. "That's life..."

    My mom had back surgery and she is way far worse than if she didnt. But you are very right if your over 40 chances are that you have issues.

    I can not stand for more than about 10 minutes I can't even stand at the sink and wash a few dishes without ending up bent over.. My husband is constantly on me doing stuff that hurts my back I've gone to doctors at the Cleveland Clinic and they can't tell me whats wrong. I take 25 pills a day 19 just for my back. Now my knee is going and I have lightening like nerve pain going down both legs Dr says that's Bursitis and I have have have 6 nerve blocks in my back. I honestly think Dr take guesses and try anything they think might help but nothing has and now we have lost our insurance so I sit and suffer and try to not to get addicted to the pain meds that are the only thing that helps

    my gram would say life begins at 40 and 50 's are the golden years.... she forgot to explain this saying---- after 40 life begins with the aches and pains all over and the 50's are the golden years for doctors because we are running to them all the time lol

    I have alot of back problems, with disk, degenerative and have had compressed fracture in shoulder area and I also have bad heart to go with it...LOL Had heart attack at 47 and Doctor say I am not a candiate for surgery, ( which I would not have at this point) so I have to live and move by pain meds prescribed by my pain management. My Grandmother always told me "You will pay for what all you do, one day". I didn't believe her but sure do now...

    I gave up on Drs. ..have learned more and been helped more by a pain management clinic..MRI's were done the serious problem is in my neck..compressing nerves..actupuncture is my 1st choice..then injections..they really have helped me !! I do have pain meds I will take in a heartbeat if needed..but am taking less and less..I'm going to keep quilting and moving as long as I can..lol..!!

    I have a few bone spurs in the lower back. And my Orthopedic Doctor says the early signs of arthritis are showing up. I take Mobic twice a day for the inflammation and Tylenol.

    I'm a young one and my whole family have bad backs... regular monthly chiropractor visits keep me mostly pain free! Walking really helps my mom and light weight lifting helps my dad.

    I met up with a bunch of potholes and came out of it with a compound compression fracture in the L-1 vertabrae near the end of Feb. I can finally sit for longer periods of time. I had Kyphoplasty the 29th of March after being bedridden for 5 weeks in agony. The procedure got me out of the wheelchair (I couldn't walk or sit before) At this point, standing around bothers me the worse. But the muscles in my back are finally getting stronger...I go to the gym and use the treadmill 3 times a week....Up to 1 1/4 miles in 25 minutes...Yay for me ! LOL
    I take 2 tylenol in the morning and 2 at night for pain and seems to work well. Started taking the grapes in gin cure and that just might be working too. I seem to be getting better faster now. It's just amazing that I can walk without pain. Borders right on miracle.
