Well I really think I know the answer to this , it is obvious, but if they had to live with this kind of excruciating pain, they would think twice about issuing something, they wanna give you stuff like Tegretol and Neurontin, which by the way does not help in my case, but I cant hardly get them to give me anything for the pain. I describe my pain as feeling like a Migrane Headache, a Severe Toothache, A Severe Earache and a Sinus Infection all balled into one. It hurts in my temple, my teeth hurt, both top and bottom, my throat hurts and becomes numb, my lips swell and my face swells, my nose runs on that one side, my eyeball aches, and if I let the symptoms go they will progress to a full blown Migrane Headache. I appreciate them giving me something for it in the first place, but that is the most excruciating pain I have ever experienced, it is worse than having a baby and I literally mean that! My eyes water and I cry and get sick to my stomach. How much are we suppose to take from this monstor!
