You don't mention what kind of doctors you've seen.  It sounds like you really need a pain management specialist.  Here is a link to a directory of pain specialists:  Doctors for Pain  I hope you find someone there that can help you. 


There are so many different options for treating pain.  You shouldn't have to live like that.  Here is an article that can give you some useful tips before you see your next doctor:  How to Talk to Your Doctor About Your Pain
