Can you be more specific when you state you have facet joint bone disease if you don't know the facet joints are a pair of small joints towards the rear of the vertebra that guide motion of the vertebra.

I am guessing that you have arthritis in these joints this can be pretty painful you don't need to have compressed nerves to be in pain.

Facet joint arthritis is an indication that there is a degenerative process going on in your spine including the discs that may worsen over time, and cause disk problems you would need a current MRI to find out what condition your spine is in.
