I too suffer from bad back pain I also suffer from degenerative disc disease, I've had 3 disc's removed in my neck, and fused,most of my pain is in my is in my pelvis and my left leg gives way alot when I'm walking I'm now on Bu-Trans morphine patches 20mg/hr at first they used to last a week, but now they only last 3 days, I'm also on strong painkilling tablets, and anti-inflammitary drugs,and I also have high blood pressure, which is probably dues to pain, its getting me down, I have to wear a brace when I go for a walk, but I can't walk far, it also effects my sleep pattern. So far there is no cure that's what my surgeon said, its a part of the aging process.
