"messed up"?: If you back condition is due to trauma it should improve relatively quickly or needs specific delineation. You also mention another pain condition (migraine), and maybe a third (dry socket); so, your pain biology may be at issue. If so, then your path with opiates may be problematic and you should not continue to take more unless you look carefully at your addictcion potential.
