    Walking, pilates, stretching etc helps me.
    I’m worse when i’m off work as i’m a bit of a couch potato and i seize up.
    Lounging about and laying in bed past 8am are the worse for me and when it’s playing up, all you want to do is lay down!

    Try Pilates and stretch it out for some relief and also get some pregabalin.
    I had my spine drilled out L5 S1 in 2007, best £5k I ever spent, same guy that did Russell Watson.
    Tens machines offer some relief, Asda do a Kinetik one for @ £30 that you can get replacement pads for.
    Once you have a bad back you’ll always have it though, I had to have the nerves at burnt at L4 L5 (Bi lateral de-nervation) in Sept last year.
    Hope you get some help and relief.

    Sounds bad mate but dont underestimate what physio can do for this (as I did). Its amazing what some simple exercises can do.

    Surgery from a respected surgeon in this field will be the best option.

    Post op make sure you do the physio rehab sessions they give you and I'd recommend taking up yoga, go to a class to begin with maybe, you'll feel a different man. Good luck.

    I had it bad about 12 months ago but had 6 sessions of physio with some exercises and stretches and it cleared it up, still get the odd twinge but touch wood it's not returned as before.
