I know how you feel, I am going through my worst battle ever.It has been over a month being pain free. I take 6 firocet(the daily Max.) 3 Toradol, and Vailum. I did take 2 muscle relaxers, elevil, zoloft, amerge, imetrex, midrin, codine, and others that STILL had no effect on me. I stopped taking most of it because it has not helped. I still take the Firocet and Toradol. But I take the MAX. of both pills and NO relief. I am at wits end. No pain killer can seem to help. When I go to the hospital, they have to give me double doses to just DULL the pain. I live in a constant pain, or daze(from meds) but most times both at the same time. I feel your pain. At home, I also try aiming a blow dryer in my face and letting the hot air heat my face and contract the blood vessels. Or I take a towel soaked with HOT water. Sometimes it works, others not, But if I know how you feel, you will try anything. Hope to hear from you soon. Keep your chin up and try to treasure every pain free moment ( how small they might be) I have learned that so far in this group and I have only visited for 2 days!
