4 bulging cervical discs, degenerative disc in lumbar, no nerve impingement. Why so much pain ?

Well.... I have been in lots of non fault car accidents, three bad accidents, I have minor problems with major symptoms and am trying to figure out the reason for how I feel. I have mild right sided cerebral tonsillar ectopia , 4 bulging cervical discs, a syrnix in my thoracic spinal cord and curvature of the spine with convexity to the right, I have faucet aropathy/neuropathy? And a degenerative disc in lumbar . So far none showing nerve impingement nor believed to be the reason for why I am in sooooooo much pain, like no joke if it wasnt for my 3 yr old I don t k ow why anyone would want to live a life with the way I always feel. I take to manage pain and agitation from pain, Percocet 10 s 4 times a day, soma 325 3x s, fironal 4 times a day give or take, and lorazopam 1mg twice a day. Also in the morning I seem to have a clear watery liquid draining from my nose, usually one sided and only in the morning I have noticed. I have never suffered from allergies. It s been happening a lot recently... Thank you for your time. :-)

Hello, I have gone through your query. With disc bulge and degenerative changes, you can have enough pain to irritate daily routine. Only pain killers wont work here, you need to evaluate the pain and correct your posture according for every activities in daily life. Your bad posture affects more with such conditions. Avoid big pillow during sleep, take medium one. Your pillow should support not only neck but your both shoulder too. While driving use lumbar corset. Don't bend directly from your lumbar region to lift any thing, instead bend from your knee and keep back straight. While sitting for long time, use a proper back rest which will cover your whole back. As you have so much pain, Consult a Physiotherapist and go for Interferrential current therapy (IFT). it will reduce your pain and follow the above advice.
