I am going to be out of town for a couple of days. I will come back on tuesday and look into the case in more detail.

Stop all other homeopathic medicines and start with mag.phos 6x , 4 tablets, four times a day. Contiue with the allopathic medication for the time being. You are aware that frequent and continuous use of pain killers have lot of side effects. So limit them to periods when the pain is really unbearable.
