In brief: Holistic pain doctor
Many docs are uncomfortable dealing with chronic pain, in part because of fear of attracting/creating drug addicts & because state medical boards punitively regulate pain med prescribing.
Seek a certified specialist in chronic pain (see http://www.Painmed.Org/) and also a holistic md who will be interested in you as a whole person & seek to treat the cause of your pain (see www.Abihm.Org/).

I assume you have not seen a pain management doctor. Please go and see one.
If its a supposedly disinterested pain doc then find another pain doc.
