you might try getting your doctor to send you to a pain clinic. they help with alternate methods of reducing how you think about pain. i've worked on keeping inflammation down by taking wild salmon and fish oils, which is a natural anti-inflammatory. glucosamine helps with stiff joints, keeping them lubed in a way. i'm still not taking any pain meds. not even tylenol. i find the more i stay active, the better i feel. when i feel fatigued and don't feel like doing anything...i feel worse. also...try a diet with fruits and veggies that counter inflammation. hope this helps and i hope you feel better. hang in there...you will find something to help you cope.
