Hello Alabama and welcome to DC... I hope you can get to a pain specialist who is preferably an anesthesiologist. They are going to want x-rays, a diagnosis and usually a referral from a treating doctor. If you have a doctor already... let that doctor know that whatever you are taking isn't working. They usually won't go from recommending the basics first to major drugs without trying everything in between first. WHY??? Insurance companies have their standards and won't cover like top of the line, brand name drugs if the lower end generics in their formularies haven't been tried first.
It always seems to be an uphill battle when it comes to pain and treatment.
I wish you well and hope you find the right treatment that works for you.
