Hang in there Jim! I always expect my PT is going to hurt and as straydog suggests, I work my pain meds around appointments - I always take a couple of Tramacet beforehand.
I hope that whatever they're trying brings you at least a little bit of relief. It can take time, but I'm generally willing to try what's suggested, because you just never know what might work or the timing might be right for something you've tried before to work. I don't resort to quackery at all, but sometimes, physio at the right time in the right place can work wonders.
Good luck, and give it time to work....I hope you get lucky and hit on the right combo of PT to help.
