In brief: Pain in the back
I have degenerative disk disease myself.
I find that the over the counter preparation called: osteo-bi-flex really helps, but it takes a month or two to kick in. It contains glucosamine, chondroitin and something called msm. Be sure and discuss with your physician and good luck to you.
