hello.....i am 63 and have had pain/sciatica for 15 months, not long compared to many , i realize. my doctor tells me to j ust get used to it, it's part of aging. my MRI shows 2 bulging discs, stenosis, arthritis, short pedicles, etc etc. i've been reading esther's beautiful book and making some changes, and my pain is different, but quite strong. i'm wondering if others my age have found the system helpful, and others with these things on their MRI. in other words, could the increase in pain mean that i'm doing damage? i can stick with it through the pain, if i know it will improve in the long run. i would appreciate any feedback on this. thank you.
