My experience was nearly identical to dgpeak. My back problems started at age 18. I am 60 now. I tried many things over the years which helped a little but did not take care of it. My worst position was sitting down. I too had the same experience with doctors- they said surgery is the last resort. I had a microdiscectomy done in 2009 and am very satisfied. I have to watch what I do, but it was very successful. Daily stretches and strengthening your core muscles is very important.
