I totally understand I have this horrible burning sensation in my elbow that just makes me crazy it is so painful, like you I don't know what to do. I am tired of pain meds that don't help, only give me a habit.
could that be a nerve in your back? I know it's painful. my surgeon has me seeing a pain management Dr next week...more meds:-( but they help me sleep...most of the time through pain. he's supposed to give me an extended release pain med..it does feel a habit but without my meds there's no way to get comfortable to sleep. a little over 7 months ago I was perfectly fine...how life changes. I read, play games, but overall I still don't really know what to do. I was so active...walkong, hiking...now by late afternoon I'm toast:-( have to lay down and that sucks. I know I could be worse off and blessed I'm not. I wish everyone could be pain free from these horrible diseases.
