Surprised they haven't tried some steroids or at least some hefty NSAIDs. You could have some heavy inflammation.
I had a very similar experience and I do not believe it is unusual for the pain to come on when you hit the sack. My doc said it's a progression of heavy ibuprofen, if that doesn't work, then steroids. If those don't work, you start getting into the expensive stuff like MRIs and surgery. Very weird to me that they didn't give medication more of a chance. I am a pharmacy student though.
Agree with those that say stay away from the chiropractor.
