In brief: Acute on Chronic
It sounds like you have an acute flare of pain on top of chronic pain.
There certainly are things that can be done. I used to practice in nola. Send me a message and i will give you names of doctors in slidell (or nola) to see.

In brief: Bodywork / PT
Chronic low back pain rarely gets better with surgery or painkillers - this may be why your doctors "don't want to do anything.
" bodywork such as physical therapy, massage, personalized special exercises and similar hands-on techniques are often the best way to reduce pain and improve function. Look for a physical therapist who specializes in low back problems as a partner to help you heal.
