Lack of mobility but doctors want to discuss pain (I have only a little).

Not feel impeded at all from waist up but below waist I have stiffness, poor balance, only a little pain, walk very slowly & meander if not focus. Difficulties include: looking back in car go in reverse, getting in & out of vehicle, going up & down inclines, walking, RUNNING, playing any sports with grandsons. Can sit & drive OK. Getting up from sitting is difficult but manageable. Had disc bulge removed L5. Diagnosed with osteoarthritis. First steriod shot in lower back felt miraculous. Lasted a few days. Nothing positive since then, even with more shots. Perhaps no cure but feel perhaps I should be taking something for relief of symptoms. Had tests of MRI, brainwaves, & found no tumors. Born 1947, 5'10", 205lbs. Can you help?
