Suggest treatment for upper back pain and insomnia
Consider connective tissue disorders.
Hello and thanks for using HCM.
I have read your query and understand your concerns.
I don't think this is MS, fibromyalgia is a possible condition that may relate to these symptoms, but you have been treated about it with no improvement.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't see any evaluation or tests to assess rheumatoid arthritis or connective tissue disorders, as possible conditions that may cause your symptoms.
I think there is need for screening with blood tests about CBC, CRP, sedimentation rate, ANA, rheumatoid factor, anti-CCP.
Muscle biopsy also may be of help in achieving a correct diagnosis of your condition.
Discuss with your primary care Doctor about getting these tests done.
Hope you found the answer helpful.
Let me know if I can assist you further.
Narcotic painkillers, consider evoked potentials.
In this case I suggest to get evaluated further with evoked somatosensory and motor potentials to have a better understanding of your condition and to get a differentiation between neurological and rheumatic conditions.
Narcotic painkillers such hydrocodone, oxycodone etc. should be considered as symptomatic treatment about your pain.
Hope I helped you.
