Treat: Just be careful not to use medications that would worsen the situation lile frequent dosing of short acting opioids. Antidepressants with nor-epinephrine effect, anti-epileptic drigs and some other agents are most helpful.

Treating chronic pai: Treating chronic pain is not "taboo". You need an in depth evaluation and examination by a board certified pain specialist. This is important in order to determine a treatment plan. All too often the pmd starts with medications which may or may not be appropriate.

Lifestyle Change: Consider how to modify your lifestyle to incorporate your capabilities with your chronic pain condition. Activity Pacing is a useful strategy as are relaxation and stress management strategies. Also consider your expectations of your activities with your condition and ensure they are realistic. A pain management specialist or clinical health psychologist can teach you these specific skills.
