Hi Bostick36 !!!

If I read your initial posting correctly (and I try not to ASSume anything)...

You JUST got a formal diagnosis from a psychiatrist...

Yes ???

And he or she or it put you on Klonopin and Lamictal ???

How much of each ??? I have experience with Klonopin, but not Lamictal...

ALL psychotropic medications affect nerve signal transmissions...

Pain is experienced through nerves...

Need I complete the puzzle ???

Meds can result in sensitivities...

Try to write down (log) what you experience, and be sure to report it to your Psychiatrist !!!

Good Luck !!!

Hi There

I don't know anything about the drugs you're on, but I have been on many of the ones you mentioned. I just wondered about your jaw pain, do you grind your teeth at night? I do, and it's causing me a whole world of problems, I know jaw pain is among them.

Welcome to the board, I hope we are able to help you maneuver through this maze of questions we all have everyday about our bodies, our brains, our moods, our families and our insanity....we try and help to keep each other a little bit sane, or at least amused...

Take it easy, and good luck with your new meds!!
