Brief Answer:
You need powerful analgesics and SSRIs or nerve pain medicines

Detailed Answer:
Hi ! Welcome to health care magic! Thanks for sharing your concerns with us. We will try to help you in best way possible. First of all, it is sad to know what you had gone through. Based on the history you have shared, it seems as if you have already been through alot and have tried all the general options as you have mentioned. Polymyalgia rheumatica is a serious entity and needs to be managed by a rheumatologist and treatment regimen shouldn't just be confined only to OTC analgesics but the spectrum of treatment can and should be extended to powerful analgesics like tramadol or nerve pains masking drugs including certain drugs like carbamezapine or duloxetine. Other measures may involve a consultation by a pain medicine specialist and a physiotherapist for supportive therapies. Wishing you a speedy recovery. If you have any more questions, feel free to ask. Regards.
