  • Have you tried a new doc? If all else fails there are long acting opiates that help alot of people and also nerve pain meds if the pain is caused by the nerves. It sounds like you are not getting proper care from the docs that you are seeing and should look for another doc. Good luck and please keep us posted.
  • thanks to all those that send good things.i have been to pain management had injections and told im no candidate for surgury as its to riscky
