Discussions that mention demerol

Pain Management board

Sammy, I agree...I am so scared that something will happen and the next doc will not believe me. None of the tests show anything.

Was the next test a discogram? That's the one my doc won't do because it's too painful and may or may not tell him what's wrong.
Back in the 80's, before much was known about tmj, I woke up one morning and couldn't open my mouth. My very nice dentist gave me demerol for a week for the pain and then suggested the UW. Well, all they did was imply that the pain was "in my head"....it was but not the way they meant it. It's a bonus now that my pain meds help with my jaw pain.

Good luck and don't give up the search for a diagnosis.~Mush
