  • What about high doses of pain meds?

    I have had TMJ for seven years. In the past three years the pain and migraines were excruciating. The Dr could never find any Rx that I could take due to side effects, so I took ibuprophen. LOTS OF IBUPROPHEN! The minimum dose was three, every six hours, for days at a time. Four at a time was VERY common. If I got no relief in two hours we took another for a total of five. My Dr was aware of this and said I'd be fine. Thirty days after my treatment was complete and I didn't need ibuprophen anymore I started the typical story of IC.
    My mom is possitive it was all the meds, but I guess we'll never know.
    The ironic thing is now I have a uro that WILL NOT give oral pain meds of any kind.
    So what do you think any possible connection?

    P.S. I too have a number of saddle horn stories from early ages to teen years.

    I believe that all the pain meds I was taking for headaches and a bad tooth caused my bladder to become inflamed and then to IC.

      The same for me. In my 20's, I took a lot of Ibuprofen for neck pain over a five year period.

        Ibuprofen can have some serious side effects if taken over a long period. I can't take it at all without severe gastric distress along with bladder pain.

        Have you had testing done to find the reason for the jaw pain? I ended up with surgery for my TMJ.
