having two ruptured discs in my back with nerve impingement I feel for ya Sir. If they are ruptured discs (only an MRI can tell for sure) they will probably never heal either...fun eh.
I have suffered from this for 20 years....slowly modifying what I do and how I do it based on pain. Sadly the pain returns after the change eventually, and after 20 years I have run out of things to change. I finally said screw it and requested a pain referral. Opioids solve anything but are incredibly addictive.....so I tried cannabis 3 grams a day taken orally and it really made a difference. The CBD strain has effective pain modification without the stoned sensation. The THB strain removes pain completely for about 10-12 hrs but you are feeling pretty stoned about the 5 hr mark. There are different THB strains....some dont make you as stupid ( I get stupid when I am stoned) ....
I would seriously give cannabis a shot, I am about 1 month in and I now sleep 8 hrs pain free each night where I use to get 2-4 hrs sleep a night max.
now it isnt cheap....(but then neither is opioids) unless you have good benefits.
Actually... the quebec ice storm disaster occurred in Jan of 1998... the Toronto storm was sometime in early 1999. Two separate storms atleast a year apart. I was deployed for both.
The quebec one was particularly nasty because a storm a month or so earlier had already crippled many hydro towers, So the rest were very weak and the temp wooden ones couldnt deal with the ice from the Jan ice...
The Quebec one was a real disaster, for the Toronto one, I stayed in a nice hotel with my girl friend while we waited for the super storm that never arrived.
