User avatar Hello:
It sounds like with your multiple problems that you need to be seen by a Pain Management specialist. These are doctors who specialize in conditions that cause chronic pain lasting months or years. They work not only on prescribing meds but treatments that may help to reduce the amount of pain you are in. Each person is unique unto themselves when it comes to experiencing pain and fortunately in our day there is a specialty for managing it. Can you ask your primary physician to refer you to a Pain Management jSpecialist? That way both can be your doctors and you hopefully will get some relief.
