In brief: Use your mind

Psychotherapy, with a trained pain psychologist is a great therapy for any chronic pain syndrome.
It focuses on helping your mind cope and live with the pain, not just cover it up with pain medication. If you stick with it and give it a good try, you can improve your functioning greatly.
