Baastrup's disease, Kissing Spine excruciating pain

Just been dx'd with this with an x-ray. Severe DDD from L1-S1. All of them "demineralized". I assume that means Osteoporosis. At any rate, now waiting for MRI approval. Work comp and they're being very uncooperative (another story), so I am paying out of my own pocket.

Excruciating pain when trying to arise from lying down and even after sitting or reclining. My spine seems to lock up and can take minutes to relax, thus "Kissing". Well, at least I have a partial answer explaining this pain which seems to be escalating at an alarming rate. 

Please, anyone who is familiar, tell me of your experience. I am so frightened. Thank-you
