In brief: Time and bracing

Time is really the only "cure".
Bracing the pelvic girdle with a sacral band can help. Physical therapy is a real help in instructing you on what to do and how to decrease the pain. Occasionally we use narcotics but we really try to minimize that during pregnancy. I know this can be incredibly painful and frustrating. Good luck!
