I am so sorry for all your pain!!! I can relate b/c I hurt my lower back in September (bulging disc). These are the things that helped me: chiropractor (get a good recommendation), physical therapy, a Tempurpedic knockoff bed (Sealy Trueform), a Tempurpedic pillow...and then after I started feeling a little better--yoga and pilates. Yoga and pilates have really helped me to get to the next level in recovery. I am getting much stronger in my back and abs. (I already had the flexibility and good range of motion) I now only go to the chiropractor when I feel like I need it (about twice a month if that) and I no longer do physical therapy. (I "graduated" from it!) I know your pain is in a different area, but maybe one or more of those things might be helpful to you, too.
