I think I may have mentioned this a while back, maybe not, but my wife 
has a condition the doctors refer to as Central Pain Syndrome which she 
acquired(?) after her stroke. The stroke destroyed most of her pain 
sections of her brain, and instead of a symmetrical paralysis on one 
side of her body, she has  symmetrical pain on the left side of her 
body. It's much like the phantom pains amputees have, though much worse. 
She is experiencing with her doctors something similar to what you 
describe with your pain doctors.

If you wouldn't mind dropping me a line off list once you find anything 
new, I'd certainly be appreciative, as most of her medications are now 

Thanks and hope things get better soon.
