Please don't be sorry for posting or think that your babbling, as the saying goes misery loves company, and when your hurting really bad it is difficult to suffer in pain alone! We are here to listen and to give you our support! You know you might want to call your PM and explain what you have been going through, you never know maybe he/she can do something for you. You will never know unless you try. Who knows maybe just maybe your PM might be able to help you! You should not have to be in pain like that! Also have you tried alternating hot and cold, that sometimes will help bring relief. I wish I had some answers for you that could make your pain go away. Just know that your not alone.
I wish you well and hope you get some relief soon!
