My cousin had itchiness that would not go away, until he was diagnosed with Sezary Syndrome, stage four. Unfortunately he passed away several years ago from this horrible illness. I was glad to read you will be seeing your neurologist regarding this problem.
What does your doctor say? Unfortunately, I have had migraines also, the only way is to try each medicine individually for four weeks or so, then double them up, also for at least four weeks, then try them in groups of three. It takes forever to try them all, that is only the preventative ones, you also try the rescue ones the same way. Best of luck to you.
I also tried a TENS unit with good results, also a hot tub that always makes me feel better, at least for the time I spend in it. This has allowed me to keep my opioid meds at a minimum for many years.
I would go back to see the same doctor that ordered the xrays, and let him know what you are feeling. If he was the doctor from the DR, go to your family doc or the doctor on the ER sheet.
Worker's Comp varies from state to state as it is a state program, so they may limit who you can see, check with them first, be sure to tell the doctors you see in the future that they will be paying your bills.
Everyone interprets their pain differently. The whole pain score thing is meant to trend pain in one person, not to compare pain in different people. I personally have seen several different pain scores and their interpretations.
I have a pain score that I rate at a seven normally, but I would never compare my pain to someone else's.
