I have a some what embarrasing problem since Ive had my TMJd. As the pain and ear ringing got worse, I lost more and more sleep and turned to sleeping pills and muscle relaxants for help. Its now been 9 months and I can't sleep at all without pills, can't even nap. I know it makes things worse. I called a detox center because the problem has gotten so bad, but unless Im doing something like cocaine or booze they seem to have no interest in helping me. What can I do? Im so tired.
Mdla...try posting on the Addiction and Recovery board on this site...very caring people there and I'm sure they can help you out with some ideas on how to taper off the medication you have become addicted to! This can happen to anyone, so don't feel ashamed! Good luck to you and hope you get to feeling better soon! TC!
