In brief: Maybe

Sorry to hear this.
These things may take some time: r lipoic acid 100 mg 2x/ day, b vitamins (be careful not to take too much b6). Good nutrition is key; probiotics can help nutrient absorption try acupuncture (may need to try several practitioners) and find someone with a therapy called frequency specific microcurrent. My clinical experience with these indicate they work for some people.

In brief: Yes

There are medications to suppress your symptoms, although there might be no complete pain relief.
I would suggest discussing with comprehensive pain clinic specialist.
