I am 59 years old and I have had extreme jaw pain for the last 10 days. I went to the dentist last Tuesday and she could not identify tooth that was causing pain. She gave me a zpak and Tramadol to no avail. I went back to her today believing I had two abscessed teeth. She tested me and called my gp, who saw me and diagnosed me with TN. He prescribed prenidsone and carbamazepine and tylenol. I cannot sleep! 600 mg ibuprofen was helping some but he doesnt want me to take it. I live half-way between Houston and Austin. Do I find a Neurologist tomorrow or try this fegime first? If it doesn't offer relief soon, I will go crazy! Any advice is welcome.
