Central Pain Syndrome - local or diffused - deep brain stimulation - brain spect scan

I was in an accident 9 years ago and have been fighting for my life and my body has metamorphically been changing physically and neurologically. I live alone and go through major anxiety running around the world for medical help. Has anyone looked around the world and finally had a good experience to find a doctor who deals with burning in the head to your toes with muscle spasms?

I get pain even with shots of pain in my head, headaches, memory issues. I asked for a brain spect scan from a neurologist to have a doctor like Dr. Daniel Amen to tell me what is wrong with the activity in the brain

I heard of the heard of tried the ''deep brain stimulation'' for their condition? It is done by a neurosurgeon for people in extreme pain and suffering from depression, too. It has been used for Parkinson's and OCD patients as well.  Medications are limited in effect if it works at all. This is the last resort for people in burning.

If you have any knowledge or experience in this, please let me know what your experience has been, how much you paid, and what doctor treated you with any other helpful information.

    I've been around the US but not tried those things, but I have heard of them.  Can you supply some details in regards to accident and diagnosis and what's been done so far.
    The deep brain stimulation is very new for central pain and I believe the hope is like ketamine where it resets your brain function as central pain is maintained by brain functioning incorrectly.
    The burning pain from central pain is quality of life robbing and relentless 
    Do your due dilegence, trust you know your body and question everything if it does not fit. Advocate for yourself and you will be suprised what will be revealed trusting your body and instinct.
