I am sorry you have had so many strokes.

I am sorry you are always in pain. where is this pain you are having?

where you diagnosed with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy Syndrome?

has some good information on RSDS

have you tried nerve pain medications like lyrica (pregabalin) or Neurotin (gabapentin) which can help nerve pain

cymbalta can help symptoms of depression and some body pain symptoms.
