I am so sorry. My first suggestion may sound strange but it is true. Are you getting enough, proper sleep? I am now on a nightly sleep aid. The deep sleep really does make a difference. Your body needs rest to control the pain. My primary care doctor also put me on an antidepressant as this is supposed to help with pain control. I am allergic to aspirin, etc, so for break through pain I take Vicoden. But I try to avoid that one, for fear of becoming dependent. And try to take breaks through the day - even when you don't think you need one. Hope you feel better, soon.
Take care, Fran
