Hello and welcome to HW Chronic Pain. Sorry to read of your husband's terrible pain conditon. Sounds really bad. Any chance any of these doctors attributing the pain to some kind of severe pain damage? That is what I am dealing with mostly, and this type of damage will not show up in MRI's or CAT scans.
Not familiar with the Diamond clinic, but Mayo might be a good choice - with their great reputation. How old is your husband, and is he still able to work or having to work? I wouldn't think so with pain that severe, but I know we are going through touch economic times.
I wish the best to both your husband and to you, I know it must be heartbreaking for you to have to watch him suffer so much in pain. My wife is a nurse, and she feels the same way when she sees me having bad pain spells, because she knows' there is nothing she can do for me, accept be there for me.
Tell your husband to never give up hope, though, there must be an answer for the source of this pain, and hopefully, a solution is sitting out there for him.
