Knee & Hip Problems Board Index

Is spondylilolisthesis a medical term for "squished disk?" I, too, suffer from chronic hip and lower back pain. Years ago, my doctor diagnosed me with tendonitis, hip bursitis and squished disks. When my back really hurts, I can feel a bulge on my spine.
But the hip is much worse. It has bothered me badly for over a decade. Chronic pain has taken over my life. I've tried all forms of traditional therapy, except a hip replacement, from nsaids to cortisone shots.
Has anyone here tried herbal remedies? I have found a tea containing echinacea and licorice root has given me some temporary relief. I'm not sure if this is a long-term solution.
All I know is that it's gotten to the point where I have lost faith in my doctor, and my friends and family just don't understand how this pain has affected me. It's a struggle, not only to get through each day, but nights as well. Sleep in not good.
I've gained weight because exercise is excrutiating; yet I know losing weight would help some. I work at home, because it's all I can do. I've started my own business, but it's slow-going. I'm wondering if I can get disability payments, but I doubt it. My doctor isn't very cooperative and besides, who gets disability for bursitis? I'm at the end of my ropes with this!
