I am new to all of this and just found your story and found that no one responded. Sounds like you're really bummed and maybe by now everything is better and your spine is not in fact degenerating. I hope that you felt better venting, because that's what I do a lot of on this blog. I'm 65 and found out that I have scoliosis. What's that about? I've found everyone here so helpful and I hope that maybe you found some help on another thread. Hope that your life is going well.
