Why doesn't the pain 'remit' completely?

I have RRMS, and the relapses aren't that common. It's about 1/7-8 months. The problem is that the pain never goes into remission completely. Some of it sticks around, and all they're doing is prescribing me more pain medications to keep it under control. So far they have me on...

600mg of Gabapentin
2 Tylenol 3s (total of 60 mg codeine and 600 mg acetaminophen)
600 mg of ibuprofen.

A cocktail of drugs that I ...
