So sorry you've started running into medication roadblocks. For some reason I started reading the Chronic Pain forum a few months ago, and there are several (most!) members there who have similar frustrations.
It's a terrible situation, and most end up having to make choices about
which body part to treat, leaving the rest alone. I can't tell you how much that sucks, you already know that better than I do!
Anyway, just wanted to let you know I feel for you, and that folks on Chronic Pain share your situation - maybe you'll get some helpful replies posting over there?
