neck,back chronicle pain

I had neck surgery 2004. Since then I've had severe pain on my back,arms,elbows,inter-thighs,ankles.I get burning sensation down my back.At times I get sharp burning pain on my elbows ,chest,arms,and now it travels down my legs.I had a myelogram,2008.C3-4, minimal central disc bulge.C4-5,central disc herniation which indents the thecal sac with residual sac diameter 9mm. C5-6,minimal degenerative changes. T8-9,small central disc herniation without cord compression is seen minimal indenting the thecal sac,degenerative disc disease is seen.T9-10,degenerative  disc disease with herniation.A right posterior and lateral disc osteophyte complex is seen,somewhat narrowing the right neural foramina without significant cord compression.Conus seen at T12-L1. L4-5shows a central and right foraminal disc herniation indenting the thecal sac and right exiting nerve root,causes moderate central stenosis with residual canal diameter of 7mm,degenerative disc disease in the lumber spine. L5-S1degenerative disc disease with loss of disc height and vacuum phenomenon is evident with likely annular tear and fissure with air seen in the epidural space,likely represents annular tear with disc herniation adjacent to the left exiting nerve for this level,vacuum phenomenon and soft tissue gas and epidural space likely represents annular tear with disc herniation which may contact the exiting left nerve root.Should I be getting the symptoms that I'm getting,daily? Why am I having new symptoms?Why do I get sharp burning on my arms ,elbows,and now my legs.Is there anything that can be done?My neck gets swollen when I drive,if I stand to long it starts to hurt! PLEASE HELP! I'm getting worse and at times I do get scared! Scared that it will be to late,when someone does find out what is causing my problem..   THANK YOU !!            P.S.A.
