Go back to your PCP and let him/her know that your still in pain. Maybe it's time to refer you to a specialist, if the doctor can't or won't find out what's wrong with you. I would personally ask for an MRI. It might help to diagnose your problem. good luck,

I agree with shinty. Get a second opinion and make sure you get a mri or ct scan to see what the problem is. Best wishes, Sissie

I also agree with shinty, ask for some tests to be done, once you have a diagnosis, your doctor will be able to treat you with better results. good luck to you.
