Hello- I have only been battling the pain, burning, numbness for 2 years. Had root canals & 2 teeth pulled. Have been seeing a pain management doc and taking gabapentin, muscle relaxer and amitriptiline. Mostly annoying pain only 3-4 days a week but not lately.
In last 2 weeks, pain has been increasing in duration and intensity. Doc had me increase the amount of same meds? I see this may work but in the meantime, I am miserable. I can’t chew, talk, smile or kiss my kids. I am frustrated and annoyed. Btw my pain is constant so think ATN.
I am uncomfortable asking for prescription pain meds because I do not want doc to think I am faking just to get narcotics. Funny that I get relief duri g the hour I exercise in the am and for the hour after.
Anyone else have thoughts on asking for narcotic pain meds? Because this has gone on so long, pain is worse that c-sections!
