Hi I have a few things going on health wise. Now got painful back & found out I have multi facet degenerative, which I am trying to find out about. Had injection in March but never worked now waiting to see clinical nurse at hospital for pain relief x

    Hi @jenny_64 and a warm welcome to our online community! :)

    I'm sorry to hear you've got a painful back and recently had the diagnosis of multi facet degenerative - I've googled and I wondered if it was degenerative disc disease?  Does that sound right?  I hope your appointment with the clinical nurse goes well and isn't too far off.  

    Please let us know if you have any particular questions and to get started on the community you might want to look at:
    Have a lovely Wednesday.  Take care and speak soon.
