Is degenerative disc disease life threatening?
Degenerative disc disease can have no symptoms or be very painful. Very rarely, it can become so severe that the nerves leaving the spinal column are severely entrapped. Without treatment this can lead to paralysis, but it is not life threatening.Helpful? 1 person found this helpful.
Can diet help treat chronic pain?
No single food can zap chronic pain, but a healthful diet is an important part of your pain-management strategy. The Mediterranean diet, for example, is rich in fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and healthful unsaturated fats. These edibles can help build strong bones and muscles, and—in some cases—can even short-circuit pain. A wholesome diet also helps prevent pain-aggravating weight gain and boosts your energy levels and mood so you can cope more comfortably.
