Right forearm pain: You might possibly benefit from a spinal cord stimulation system. You should get a consultation with an interventional pain management who can evaluate you for a spinal cord stimulation system. We usually put in a temporary system for a few days to see if you are a candidate for a permanent system. It can can very very effective treatment for extremity pain.

Acupuncture, PT: While i'm not sure it has been studied in cases identical to yours, acupuncture does have a role in chronic pain treatment and management. There's not going to be a magic pill, home remedy, or "natural supplement" that takes away pain completely. A multidisciplinary approach that includes some prescription meds, acupuncture and physical therapy is best.
