Nor massage, or physical therapy. Arthritis is
no respecter of people---my back is

Maybe you can change drs? Find one who is compassionate and not judgmental? Ask around, look on the internet. People live with chronic, severe pain and they ARE being treated--I just don't know how they found a decent dr.
