what is degenetive joint disease

greenspun.com : LUSENET : About Joints : One Thread

after a few months of severe pain in my lower back waking me up and night, my docter had me get a mri of the lumbar spine. I called for the results and was told that i have degenetive joint disease and that there is something wrong with the discs in my lower back. My docter now wants me to have an emg done and then she will be able to definitely tell me what is going on. Is this something serious that i need to worry about and how is it usually treated,. Looking for some answers, if anyone can help
