Hello I'm new to posting on the forum but have been here before. I have been a pain patient for 3 years. Iam 30 years old. I have had problems with my right TMJ since I was 10 years old. I tripped over a tool box and hit my right cheek into the corner of a truck. Had a splint made when I was 17 and wore it for a year but it didn't fix it. I was later in 3 car accidents, one where the airbag blew out in my face. It just got worse after that. Oral surgeon said its a structural problem where my disc slips in and out of place all day rubbing the soft tissue in between. He said avoid surgery because it often makes it worse or have to come back for 6 surgeries. I also have IBS which was very irritating before. Iam now on MS Contin 30mg 2x a day and Percocet 10mg 2x a day and Ibuprofen as needed for inflammation. Also Zofran for nausua. My IBS got 90% better on the opiates and the headaches and pain from my TMJ has decreased to a manageable level. Although I can't seem to sleep at night. I was on many different Meds before this and most recently methadone which I was on for 5 months. It made me very low on vitamins, sleep all time and teeth go bad. I'm currently on prescript
ion vitamins and switched to the MS Contin and Percocet but now I'm have alot of trouble sleeping! So my question is does anyone else have insomnia on MS Contin or other Morphine Meds. I know its not the Percocet because I was on it before without sleep problems.
