Pain for years

I am a nurse and breast cancer survivor. I started having pain shortly after having breast cancer in 1998. I was not officially diagnosed until 2016 with RA and Sjögren's syndrome. I am on my fourth medication and none have completely relieved the pain. I am getting depressed after years of pain and now no relieve. My husband and family are supportive so I am lucky in that respect. I still work full time but I am not sure how much longer I can.
