weening from a repositional splint

Anyone out there have experience with "graduating" from their repositional splint?

I've been weening for 8 days and it feels almost as bad as when I first got the splint. Is that normal? I'm a little concerned that my TMJ dentist is weening me too early if my jaw is freaking out like this. My jaw feels like it's sliding backwards to where it used to be pre-treatment and it's really hurting my face, head, and ears. Every day I'm supposed to leave the splint out a little longer and every day I'd say the symptoms are more pronounced. Does anyone know if this is a normal and temporary feeling or am I regressing? I think at this point I'm probably going to call my TMJ dentist first thing Monday morning.
