i have had severe facial pain from tmj since monday and have had irrational thoughts due to the pain, such as wanting to cut where the pain is. cuz the dr is just giving me anti inflammatory pain meds, and the med they are giving me isnt' cutting the pain. it hurts even behind my eye, above the eye, into the head, the ear, jaw of course, and below into the neck. i think the dr doesnt believe i can be in such pain, cuz i am bipolar. i have a high tolerance for pain, so i barely ever go to a doctor to complain of pain. so i just don't understand. that is why i assume its cuz of the bipolar. i dont think i would be flagged for abuse, cuz i have never abused pain meds in my life. i don't know, i guess i just wanted to complain to somebody, cuz i am hurting. i know whine whine whine.

This test went HORRIBLY. They were about 20 seconds or so into...
