My doctor put me on a pain med called Gabapentin 100mg twice a day. This is a miracle drug!! It took about 3 days to notice the effect but I am living with no pain, or a little pain now. Sometimes I can feel my legs being very stiff (like swollen) but there is no pain with it. My 6 year old is bragging to everyone that Mom has been happy. All day!! With little pain my anxiety is hardly there now. I don't know if you would have the same results but it is promising. It is used for people with chronic pain like cancer patients etc..
