How do you manage your pain?

I take painkiller and use a tens machine they just numb it for a few minutes

I have used kinesiology tape, tens unit, heat, cold, voltaren gel and compounded pain med cream. All with some degree of temporary relief. The only thing that helps for more than an hour or two is cymbalta, pain med and/or muscle relaxants and I guess epidurals. I hope something works for you! Try a pain specialist if you haven't seen one yet. The good ones can really help you and they have might have something that you haven't tried.
