I empathize with you, not only because having RA I deal with pain too but because my nephew was also in a very bad motorcycle accident and is still in a lot of pain years later. Have you seen a pain specialist? Someone recently posted a question for "Pain Medication Advice" (or similar) that had a lot of good responses - I would check that out. I hope you find a sympathetic doctor and some relief soon.
