    I am geting physical therapy but it doesnt seem to help. I also go to a chiropractor. It helps for the day but by the next day, I am still in pain. Has anyone else experienced these symptoms. I am wondering about acupuncture and epidural as a cureall. Is anyone else going through this terrible pain and if you are getting relief, please tell me how.

    I also had herniated disks and bulging disks. I tried physical therapy and it made me hurt worse. The doctor was unable to get the needle in for the epidural because of scar tissue from previous surgeries. I wish I could tell you there was a cureall for your pain. I ended up having five surgeries. There are other things to try besides surgery. You could have a morphine pump implanted. You could also try a tens unit. You should see a pain management doctor to find out what he or she suggests. I wsh you the best.    Scooter
