Meds for facet joint osteoarthritis

I was diagnosed with facet joint osteoarthritis and some degeneration at L5-S1 in spine.  I have pretty bad pain so I  am also getting a MRI to rule out disk buldge. I am on clonazepam for my migraines,  and they only give me Tylenol and Ibuprofen plus a muscle relaxer for 10 days.  I have been taking 10 mg Amitriptyline for 7 years (also for migraine) but they have tried to increase that. I really need help with the pain in order to get moving again.  Any suggestions?
