In brief: Etodolac

Lodine, or etodolac, is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory and generally does well for degenerative disease in the joints and spine.
However, don't forget the importance of strengthening and improving the flexibility of the nearby muscles - this can do even more than medicine to help with degenerative pains.

In brief: Get full evaluation

It is unclear that disk disease is the cause of the problem. Many individuals with disk damage have no pain.
If diagnosis is only on basis of vertebral osteophytes, consider seeing a rheumatologist.
