These are the most frustrating kinds of complications; the ones for which there appears to be no answer. You made a reasonable decision based upon the available information, it appears that your surgeon did everything correctly, you have sought the advice and opinion of a qualified expert, but you still don't have a resolution. Aaarugh!

This much astigmatism could most certain relate to eye strain, but we are in uncharted waters at this point. Whether or not it would do any good is difficult to predict. Your surgeon can tell you if surgery it is likely to cause any harm, however much of this should be able to be corrected with contact lenses. I recommend trying it with contacts first.
Another "experiment" you may want to discuss with your surgeon is using the cycloplegic drops that paralize the ciliary muscles. If you experience relif from the pain while the ciliary muscles are unable to move, then it would appear that eye strain related to attempted accommodation may be the problem. This test may have already been performed in your doctor's office.
