Post Are there any meds that helped?

Hi everyone,
are there any meds that have helped the pain but not knocked you out? I have finals in a week, and I am in so much pain that I can't study!! NSAIDS that are weak like Advil don't help me anymore bec i'm used to them, but anything stronger like Ultracet or a muscle relaxants knocks me out for days.
I tried using heat/ice, but I can't tolerate the pressure from the ice or heat pack. it presses on my face and makes the pain worse. I can't sleep either and I'm just having a nervous breakdown!

Hi Stacie:
Hmmm...I have a high tolerance to meds but here are some thoughts. Have you tried Darvocet, or tylenol 3, or some people use Valium. Darvocet is so mild it does nothing to touch my pain but being as how you have a low tolerance it might give you some relief, at least enough to sleep and study. It's just an idea because I know what it feels like to be in pain all the time. My headaches are about to kill me.
