I hear ya about the pain meds, Pinkeye. My doctor gives me more pain meds than I can possibly take but I am afraid of taking too much for fear of addiction so I try to make it through the pain until the next time I will "allow" myself another pill. Some days I am just a mess. Crying helps sometimes as do hot baths. Do you work also? Your work can sometimes make your pain worse. I've tried applying for time off or family medical leave and am always denied because I am not "sick enough". Antidepressants have helped some and there are a few topical RX meds that can give you a little vacation from the big "P" monster. I agree though there are some very good pain clinics out there that employ a variety of methods. I wish you well my friend.
