Hi all, It's 5:00 AM and I've been up since 3:30 with a pain that feels like it is pulling my right jawbone out of my face. I can be prefectly fine until I lay down and then it hits me (well it woke me up tonight). I know I don't have the best teeth but I don't think this has anything to do with a toothache. The whole side of my head from my eye to my neck and behind my ear hurts like mad. I'm thinking about doing a clinical trial on Cymbalta in a few weeks when I get the OK from my primary MD and get weineed off the meds I'm already on. They told me I couldn't take anymore pain meds while on the study. I had no choice tonight, after 4 Ibuprophen, a sinus tablet that usually puts me out, and rubbing Aspercreme all over my face (that's a new one, I was desperate and willing to try anything for relief); I had to break down and take my last half of Lortab that I had. It will be a few weeks before I go in for the trials anyway so it will be out of my system before I do the drug test. My husband is concerned that I will never make 58 weeks of the trials without taking any pain meds at all. I don't take them very often anyway (maybe 1/2 to 1 every week or 2). Sorry about babbling on like this just trying to keep my mind off the pain till the meds kick in. Does anyone else get these awful pains at night? What do you do for them?
