    I was injured in 2008 and I have a lumbar facet imbrevication. Lately I have been having severe low back pain and pain in my buttocks. Both sides hurt like crazy -- I can't even sit at work for an hour anymore, and sleeping on my back causes discomfort. I'm completely at a loss to do anything about this and need some advice.
