    I am terribly sorry to hear about your pain. I'm wondering if the doctors appreciate how bad it is and have any other suggestions for you How long have you had this pain , did it come on gradually, or if you had this pain for a long time. if it came on gradually did the doctors have anything that helped previously. Does medical cannabis offer any relief ? have you been able to pursue that? I hope perhaps some alternative medicine can help you if the doctors have not been able to . I wonder if you can share with us your age now and when this pain started and anything else you may have been trying along the way. You deserve relief and hopefully some other readers can help

      I'm 54 and it has come on slowly in the respect of a sharp ache that would last ten minutes then go every couple of months over past year or two but now it's here constant . Tramodol offers no relief but I've been on that for a fewhile years for lower back and costo so I think I'm immune . Have physio on 22nd for first appointment . The pain just doesn't ease . Someone suggested nortryptiline

    My thoracic back pain is mainly due to muscle spasm - which can trap nerves and cause referred sharp and aching pain. I would try a physiotherapist/massage therapist.
