I can't give you a good answer on why it is so hard to control, but I can say that there are numerous medications on the market that work for many. These medications include Neurontin (gabapentin), Lyrica, and Cymbalta. I have taken Cymbalta for nerve pain with some success. There are numerous folks on this site that take Neurontin with success. I have, also, heard good results with Lyrica. We are all different so I can't say what might work for you.
Have you tried any of these? They are non narcotic so are not addictive.
Hope this helps,
