@suzetteirons Welcome to Mayo Clinic Connect! It sounds like you certainly have been having a difficult time. Have you kept a journal, listing the times you have the pain, location, time of day, what you were doing, etc. Then also a list of medications you have tried [successfully or not], and the drs you have seen? If you are near a Mayo Clinic campus, it might be worthwhile to see about getting an appointment, or go to a large teaching hospital.

Hello Ginger thanks for responding to my message no I don’t keep a journal but I can kinda remember the different doctors I have visit and the medication s I have taken, I am living in Georgia and I don’t think a Mayo Clinic is close by but this is my last resort because am so tired of going to different doctors with no answers, I try to keep records of my blood works. My pain will start in the morning as I wake and it would run for days and the only pain killers I notice work is Tylenol extra strength but all the other meds they have me on don’t help.
