Never give up hope. I live with chronic pain due to severe degenerative disc disease. I am always searching for a way to ease the pain without the use of pharmaceutical medicine. Lately I have been using sound, as in Harmonics in the keys of F sharp, A, C sharp and D sharp. I found a video a that talked about the Pyramids being Harmonic Resonators and that that is what kept the people in balance. I have also for years now used a sound vibration unit for pain known as the the Infratonic 9000, this works along the lines of Qui Gong frequency. I have been noticing that they both work good. Just lately I have been trying a new process of control called "Access Consciousness". This basically has to do with questioning everything that happens to you, example: You have some kind of pain, you ask yourself "is this my pain or someone elses", listen for the answer, if it's yours ask your body how it can adapt to the problem, if it's not, say "I return this pain back to the owner with complete consciousness attached". Question everything, the answer is always inside of you, you just have to listen to it. My friend that taught me this is an energy worker, she uses this practice daily in every aspect of her life.

I hope these help you, they have for me.
