Wow, Jeff, for only being 18 you have been through a lot! You are an amazing person to continue to go to school full time, deal with the horrendous pain and keep up with everything. I have 2 small boys, stay at home, and do the best I can to take care of the house, the boys, me, and not to mention my husband.
I have been dealing with chronic pain for 6 months. I now take 40 mg oxcontin every 12 hours, vicoprofen 7.5 X4 as needed for breakthrough pain, and flexerill and valium for muscle relaxants. I also take lexapro for anxiety and depression.

I hope your new combo of pain medications will help, and I hope that the botox will be covered by your insurance. I am battling my insurance company for surgery on my tmj, an I have been battling them for 6 months. Did you just start the new round of medications, and if so how are they working, are they getting it down to a 5? I hope so, and don't be afraid to call and tell them it is not working. Everybody is different, and what works for one does not the other. I wish I could help you more, but it would be great if you could write us back and tell us how your medication is working. Keep your head up, and it seems you have a good doctor who is helping you with the pain. Please keep in touch. Kassandra
