Hi I am currently being investigated for TN. Symptoms are electric like shocks in my gums and teeth around my left hand side. It all started on a flight in July and has returned on 3 other flights since then. The pain is excruciating and painkillers dont help. In September the pain came at home which was a complete shock as I thought it was dental trouble affected by air pressure. I don't have any facial pain and dont know what the triggers are when not flying. After having dental treatment I have seen a doctor at the Dental Hospital who believes it is TN but having an MRI scan next week. I am taking Oxcarbazepine 300mg daily. The pain has subsided but I am getting daily tingling in my teeth which feels like the pain is about to start but doesn't. There are lots of things to get my head around and it is a very upsetting time for me and my family. My dentist has suggested that I might not be able to fly again as this seems to be the only trigger that we can identify. Has anyone else had pain when flying and could suggest help of how to deal with it.
