I know this is kind of an old post but I wanted to ask you if you had tried muscle relaxers? My favorite is Soma, because I swear it works better than vicodin on pain for me anyway. These are not long term drugs but just take them when your pain is the worst. Also hot pads, cold packs, and lots and lots of pillows will help. Or maybe sleeping without a pillow! Everyone is different we just have to find what works for us. Good luck to you, I know it isn't easy. May you find something to help soon.
