    Hi @cupcakemandy
    Im sorry to hear you are having such a difficult time, I just need to put a reminder here that we can't share medical advice and so I hope you can seek the opinion of a doctor.

    Have you been seen at a specialised pain clinic?

    I also have issues with pain medication as I am allergic to most of the strong medication that treats chronic pain.  Like the person who started this post I have issues all the ones they have issues with.  I expect that the other medications they have listed will be an issue as well.
