I'm diagnosed with Lumbar Degenerative Disease and I have frequent flare ups. What can I do?

I am 25 and diagnosed with Lumbar degenerative disease. I have 2 Protruded discs in the lumbar spine, arthritis and the spongy bits between the discs are shortened. I have had frequent flare ups since I was 22. Over time, I have noticed that my flare ups aren't as severe nor last as lon, however they still effect me, physically and emotionally.

I tried CBD oil and it did not work at all it was useless .I do find my massage chair works just to loosen me up in the bottom of my spine where i have nerve impingement in L5 but with having Fibromialgia too, I feel pain more than I would if I did not have it as it makes all my census very aware of pain ect.

I have degenerative disk disease,I hurt 24- 7, I also have nerve problem from a Dr. yrs ago missed & hit my nerve to my left leg,all the way down to my little toe. Weight gain,my right knee is totally messed up I'm waiting on a shot in a week or two. I'm on a lot of pain meds. plus CBD,that helps. Your always going to have pain,you'll never get it to totally stopped. Keep up what you love,but know your not getting younger even though you are still young,your body can handle so much. Keep your core strong as possible,but don't over do it! .

CBD oil is supposedly not to make you feel like that. I wonder what was in it. I keep meaning to talk to my doctor about the CBD oil but keep forgetting when my appointment comes around. Guess I am going to have to write myself a note.
