Suffering from severe back pain, gastric problem, diaphragm pain. Prescribed endep, targin. Explanation? Remedy?

hi, i have had back (thoracic) pain for ten years now, it has always been a battle to explain to doctors and specialists
that how it effects me is not just normal and pain killers will fix, i always have had gastric and diaphragm pain and spasming. my sympathetic nervouse system is now always triggering i believe by the simple fact ten years has made me simply a slave to the constant pain, i have been looking at the anatomy of the area, and would like to know if theres any other avenue to explore as deep in my heart i know there is a explanation to this and that it's not JUST chronic pain at play here. note, i have had pain counciling with phychologist and all that, i am on Endep 25mg at night + Targin 20/10 at night and 10/5 at daytime. and i'm at the end as far as direction is concerned.
thanks for ay help.

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain in the back in the thoracic area could be a muscular pain, neurologic pain, hiatus hernia or related to acute gastritis. To find out the exact cause, an MRI of the area and endoscopic examination is recommended.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
