Question: Bulging Discs and Spondylolysis


 ron50 - Fri Jan 07, 2005 12:20 pm

Hello,

I'm a 50+ male with degenerative Disc disease. 6 Bulging Disc in my back and Spondylolysis in my neck. I was diagnosed with these problems approx. 4 yrs ago. I'm in constant pain, but only take over the counter pain meds. because I haven't worked in over 2 years and have no insurance. I have had urinary problems for a couple of years now and would like to know if this could be stemming from my lower back? I would also like to know if there's a clinic or doctor near Winston Salem NC that would work with me without me having any insurance or money?

Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated,
Ron
