hi can anyone recognise these symptoms I had bad sinusitis March 2014 went to dentist got antibiotics didn't clear up went to Dr he said it was muscular! 2 days later I go for a routine eye exam the optician sent me straight to a&he with suspected swollen optic discs specialists put this down to infection in sinuses eventually after several weeks things settled but nasal passages were always stuffy and headaches. In June 2014 I banged my head badly right on the very top ended up having severe headaches 10 days later I woke up with top lip burning like crazy and marks in my mouth went to Dr gave my amitrypiline said she didn't know what it was took the tablets for 2 weeks completely knocked me out by this time my tongue started burning badly went back to the dr she sent me to maxillary facial who said it was geographical tongue I asked if it would go he replied no one has ever been back with it! Things got worse I ended up with anxiety and depression took an overdose ended up in a phsyciatric hospital for a week by then I was back at home I was getting electric waves coming from my forehead to the back of my ear lip was now totally numb and my tongue still burning I was put on pregablin I then started pain in my sinus more electric shock my teeth aching all on the right hand side of my face, I had to change Dr because mine was terrible wouldn't refer me to a neurologist nothing he told me it was anxiety! I changed Dr was put on mirtazipine for depression eventually had to pay private to see a neurologist paid over £1000 to see him got an mri which came back clear he said it was post infective cranial neuropathy and would settle down then discharged me, I have seen a chiropractic 26 times they were insistent it was musculoskeletal the pain is still here I'm now seeing a cranial osteopath who says it is trigeminal neuralgia the fifth cranial nerve is affected pain radiates into my eye my dingus my teeth the pain is constant with intermittent electric shocks it gas also affected my neck my shoulder and the top of my skull is so sore sensitive and burns it feels like someone pouring hot oil onto my head a bail driven into my eye and like having brain freeze after an ice cream with constant tooth ache do these symptoms sound familiar to those of you who have TN I insisted I go to the pain clinic I go 1st July but I would like info from anyone who can help me before I go, I cry everyday I tell my poor hubby everyday I want to die can anyone help please thanks
