i am a 32 year old female that has alot of health problems. I have been diagnosed with Endometriosis, PCOS, Bipolar Disorder, Anxiety, Depression, Sleep Apnea, Migraines, digernative disc disease, just to name a few. I have been battling low back pain for years but it has recently gotten worse. I can't walk around the grocery store, can't clean, can't hold my infant neice for more than 5 minutes, and can't ride in car very far. I also have issues with my right knee- it swells and throbs gets really bad at night but pain never really goes away. My right hip and neck hurt as well. I have tried chiropractors, general dr, orthapedics, physical therapy, and spine specialist. XRAY shows narrowing between vertabrae and disc are digenerating. I have family history of spine problems, osteoprosis, digernerative disc, and RA. My father was hardly able to move at all without being in pain. He took his life cause he couldn't bare the pain anymore and I do not want to be put in that situation. Please if anyone has ideas to help or things for me to ask my dr on my next visit in 1 week please let me know. i need all the help i can get. I have 2 bulging disc one in mid back and 1 in low back, pain goes from low spine to hip then shoots down my leg. I can't lay flat at all, if I do my back locks up and I can't move for days.

If I sit on flat hard surfaces I lose feeling in my right leg or stabbing pain in right hip with pain in my knee. I can't win for losing with this. It is Christmas time so I went to the mall with my neices and could not walk but alittle at a time. It is horrible that I am 32 and can't make it through more than 1 store before having to rest. I got home and could not sleep for the pain in my back, legs, and feet. 

I have recently been diagnosed with planatar facitis and had knee surgery few months ago.

One thing that has really helped me that I discovered by accident was to sit on flat, hard surfaces instead of cushy, soft, or contured. With in days of changing my seats, I had so much relief that it was shocking. Sure enough, I googled it and discovered that soft surfaces are causing a lot of people back, hip and leg problems.
