chronic spinal pain : You seem to have chronic pain. You listed age seems young for the symptoms .It may be helpful to have a full work up. You may also benefit from psychological support and physical therapy.

One option that you: Can consider in addition is acupuncture. It is worth discussing with your pain specialist. Take care.
